South Coast Habitat Restoration is a local non-profit organization based in Carpinteria that is dedicated to environmental stewardship and habitat enhancement. They focus on steelhead trout recovery through a variety of watershed restoration projects throughout Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. Our “Coastal Human Power” fishing tournament is proud to help!
This past Saturday our initial “Coastal Human Power” fishing contest got dozens of folks out on the beach to have fun, catch fish (yes, almost no one skunked!) and raise funds for an awesome cause that provides habitat restoration and enhancement for coastal steelhead populations! The tournament kicked off and finished up at Danny’s Deli with kids, men and women all supporting South Coast habitat Restoration. Note: all proceeds from the event will go towards their important work. Special thanks goes out to Bass Pro Shops for their help and to Marco Farrell for sponsoring all the entry fees for kids. Other local support came from Carpinteria Lumber Yard, Carpinteria Sports, Robataille’s Candy, Stardust Sport Fishing/Sea Landing, and of course, Danny’s Deli. Volunteers included Gary Sanchez, Marco Farrell, Kaylan Stedman, Bob and Robin Osborn. None of this would be possible without your help!
Looked like everyone had a good time, including the fish, all of which were all released!
