Coastal Fund Spring Funding and more!

Spring is still in the air, bringing salty ocean breezes to welcome us back for Spring Quarter! Although the major grant deadline has passed, we we will be accepting minor grants ($1000 or less) until May 13th! Keep these grants in mind as you plan your future projects!

Coastal Fund is Recruting Undergraduate Board Members!

Consider joining the all-student Coastal Fund Board of Directors, in charge of allocating over $300,000 in funds each year to projects that preserve, protect, and restore the watershed and shoreline associated with UCSB. Positions are open to all degree fields, and students should expect to commit at least one academic year to the Board of Directors. This is a rare and unique opportunity to make a lasting impact while at UCSB and to get involved with the Santa Barbara community. 

For more information, requirements, and instructions on how to apply, go to our website
Join us at this year's Santa Barbara's Earth Day on April 16th & 17th!
We will be located in the Public Square in Alameda Park, with fun activities, prizes, and more information about the Coastal Fund!
