Manchester Boddy. 160 acres of gardens, woodlands and chaparral were preserved for future generations.

Join us for a tour of the Champion trees of south Santa Barbara County, home of five national champion trees and many historically significant others.  Starting and ending at the Goleta Valley Community Center, we’ll visit champion trees in Goleta, Santa Barbara, Carpinteria and UCSB.  You’ll get to touch native trees that were growing before European colonists came here.  One national champion is so big, it takes ten people with arms outstretched to circle its trunk.  Also included are non native and non invasive trees that grow in our soil better than their home environments. You’ll have numerous opportunities to disembark from the bus to see the trees up close, so bring your walking shoes. 

The tour will include local tree experts from Carpinteria Beautiful and Santa Barbara Beautiful, along with Registered Consulting Arborist Ken Knight, and via Skype, SBCC Professor Emeritus Jerry Sortomme.  This is a one time tour that will not be repeated this year.  The tour is a benefit for Your Children’s Trees, a non profit working to educate the public about the benefits of trees, and to support student urban foresters at Your Children’s Trees at UCSB.
