The Land Trust for Santa Barbara County will implement a community-based project with biotechnical soil stabilization techniques to a site in the western riparian corridor of Arroyo Hondo Creek. Removal of non-native invasive plant species, construction of brush fascines with live stakes, and planting with native plants will be done primarily by volunteers and restoration interns. The project will benefit spawning habitat for steelhead trout by reducing sediment entering the creek.
