Project Description:

Santa Barbara Channelkeeper will conduct a coordinated suite of monitoring, outreach and education, community engagement, and advocacy activities in 2020 to stem the tide of plastics polluting the beaches and marine waters of the Santa Barbara Channel and the streams and watersheds that empty into it. We will broaden the scope of our efforts, which to date have focused on plastic bags, Styrofoam, and plastic straws and cutlery, to address additional forms of plastic that we know are particularly problematic, including microplastics and balloons.
