The North Campus Open Space (NCOS) Restoration Project, restores the upper arms of Devereux Slough with funding from partner agencies. Restoration of the estuary and natural flood plain will support a diversity of birds, fish, and wildlife; absorb flood waters; and is adaptive to sea level rise. Over 2.5 miles of trails will provide scenic views and connectivity to the California Coastal Trail. The project site will be closed through October 2018 for construction and restoration led by UCSB’s Cheadle Center for Biodiversity & Ecological Restoration (CCBER).
