New Creek Tree Program

The City Creeks Division is sponsoring a new Creek Tree Program to plant native trees at homes and businesses bordering creeks within the City of Santa Barbara. For approved projects up to $1000, the Creeks Division will provide all funds for the tree planting, including irrigation. The goal is to create a native tree canopy and restore wildlife habitat along local creeks. Eligibility will depend on the site. To learn more, contact George Johnson at 897-1958.
