Carpinteria Projects

The History & Relevancy Project aims to connect Carpinteria State Beach with its local community in three ways. Firstly, we create and give tours of the environmental and cultural history of Carpinteria State Beach to begin dialogue about local history and why it matters. In so doing, we hope to cater activities and interpretation in the Visitors Center to reflect these dialogues. Finally, in fostering community connection, we hope to create a network of volunteers to continue creating, curating, and communicating local history with the local community.
