Gaviota Coast

The last piece of undeveloped coastline in Southern California extends from Eagle Canyon to Gaviota State Beach and outlying coastal canyons flanking Highway 1.  The Gaviota Coast has been a source of inspiration for Oak artists for many years. The portion southeast of Point Conception onstitutes about fifteen percent of Southern California’s coast, yet contains about half its remaining rural coastline. Since 2000, The Land Trust for Santa Barbara County has protected approximately 7,000 acres through agricultural conservation easements in the Gaviota area, working with willing landowners, agencies, and foundations.
