The North Campus Open Space (NCOS) Restoration Project, on the former Ocean Meadows Golf course and adjacent open space, 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 be adaptive to impacts associated with climate change. Over 2.5 miles of trails will provide scenic views and connectivity to the California Coastal Trail. The project site will be closed through May 2018 for construction and restoration led by UCSB’s Cheadle Center for Biodiversity & Ecological Restoration (CCBER).
