Fascinating Geology of Arroyo Hondo

March 6, 2016 from 10:30 am

Join the Land Trust for Santa Barbara County at the 782-acre Jewel of the Gaviota Coast, Arroyo Hondo Preserve.

Following in the footsteps of her legendary mentors, geologists Tom Dibblee and Helmut Ehrenspeck, Suzie Bartz makes it her mission to make our local geology interesting and understandable for community members of all ages.

Susie is very familiar with the geology of Arroyo Hondo, and is the best person to guide us on an exploration of the fascinating geological processes, rocks, and landforms of the Preserve. Bring your camera and a notebook and pencil and prepare for a morning of learning.
