The North Campus Open Space (NCOS) Restoration Project restores the upper arms of Devereux Slough with funding from partner agencies. Restoration of the estuary 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 provide scenic views and connectivity to the California Coastal Trail. The Marsh Trail is open. Restoration is ongoing and visitor amenities are under construction by UCSB’s Cheadle Center for Biodiversity & Ecological Restoration (CCBER).
