The Carpinteria Living Shoreline Festival is a new birding and nature festival in Carpinteria, California that celebrates the coast through education, arts, and outdoor adventure. Join us April 14-16, 2023 for an exploration of birds, marine life, and human interactions with the shore.

In Spring 2022, we are planning a special preview event, focused on Birding- a Little Big Day. Stay tuned!
