Montecito Holiday Trails Hike Treasure Hunt

 


Holiday Hike Treasure Hunt
We couldn't imagine closing out 2020 without a Membership hike together, even if it's just in spirit!

Dusty the Elf has inspired a Holiday Hike Treasure Hunt on the trails. He wants to see you out this week hiking:
 
~ One Community Trail
~ One Front Country Trail
~ Crossing a Creek
~ Something Beautiful in Nature: Plant, Animal or Flower

Everyone that emails us their Holiday Hike Treasure Hunt photos, or tags us on Instagram (#MTFHolidayHike) will be sent (or, if local, delivered by our Board of Directors Elves) an MTF Holiday Ornament. Ends Sunday, December 20.

Feeling extra ambitious and want extra-credit? Send us a photo from Montecito Peak!

Below is Dusty's example from his Holiday Hike Treasure Hunt!

Trails are open at the Santa Barbara Botanic Gardens

 



Our Canyon Trails Have Reopened! 


Take a break and explore the shady fall foliage of the Canyon on 5 miles of fully reopened trails. Enjoy some family fun with our reopened children's maze for an after school activity to reconnect with nature. Members can visit before the general public every day from 9-10am when the Garden is typically cooler, quieter, and great for birdwatching.
Weekday afternoons are the best time to visit uncrowded trails. Social distancing and face coverings are required to ensure that the Garden can remain open to our community.
