To be eligible, a project must further the Coastal Fund mission, be overseen by a UCSB department or be part of a registered non-profit or government agency, and take place within the Santa Barbara area.

Clean Up Our Coast this Sunday!

Join us for an afternoon of post-Deltopia karma on April 9th, "Streets to Beach: Deltopia Cleanup!"

Every year, 8 million metric tons of plastic end up in our oceans, which equates to five grocery bags filled with plastic for every foot of coastline in the world. 100,000 marine mammals are killed by ocean trash annually, in addition to millions of birds and fishes. And last year, here in IV, 3,247 lbs of trash were collected following Deltopia, with 410 buckets filled over 419.5 combined hours. 

In one day, we hope to clean the streets of IV of trash before it makes its way to the ocean, while learning tools to prevent future waste production and employ proper disposal. Help make our community clean, safe, and beautiful! Tell us you will be attending by heading over to our Facebook event

Student Groups...
Need Funding?

Looking for a great way to spend your first spring days? Need funding for your UCSB student group? You can do both by keeping our beaches clean, restore our habitats, and receive funding through the Coastal Service Program!

Gather at least 10 volunteers from your organization, and earn $100 dollars for 2 hours of beach or street cleanup, or $200 for 2-3 hours of restoration work with one of our local environmental organizations! All supplies are provided, so all you have to do is show up!

Visit our page for more details.
Applications for spring quarter are available now!
