Join COAST for its next walking tour at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.

This month’s walk will be a showcase of Santa Barbara’s unique public art. Rita Ferri of the Santa Barbara County Arts Commission will lead a walk around downtown about Santa Barbara’s rich and colorful public art scene.

Meet COAST on the lawn of De la Guerra Plaza, across from Casa de la Guerra, and see what Ferri has in store.

The walks are a leisurely 90 minutes, each month featuring a different theme, location and guest leader. Free and open to the public, the walks are held the fourth Wednesday of every month at 5:30 p.m. Past walks have included Jeff Shelton’s architecture, Santa Barbara’s trees and famous Santa Barbara buildings.

COAST (Coalition for Sustainable Transportation) promotes healthy and green ways of getting around, from biking and walking to taking the bus or the train. For more information and ways to get involved, click here or email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
