Santa Barbara Central Library Goes Out on a Limb with Arbor Day Story Time

In honor of National Arbor Day, local artist, illustrator and author Gail Lucas will read from her children’s book, Trevor, the Traveling Tree, at the 10:30 a.m. story time on Tuesday, April 23, at the Santa Barbara Central Library, 40 E. Anapamu St.

Young children and their families will enjoy the delightful book illustrations and the story of Trevor and his lucky friends, who go for a wild romp through the city and into the forest. Trevor the tree will make a guest appearance during the story time.

The Santa Barbara Public Library takes pride in honoring our rich urban forest and the variety of trees that thrive in our coastal desert climate. Several books about the trees of Santa Barbara are available in the branches of the Santa Barbara Public Library System.

Santa Barbara Beautiful was instrumental in arranging Lucas’ visit for this special story time. A local nonprofit organization that encourages young people to learn about and care for trees, Santa Barbara Beautiful teams up with the City of Santa Barbara each year to help local schools and students plant trees, and recognize their efforts at creative Arbor Day celebrations.

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!
