The Friends of Channel Coast State Parks has been funding and supporting interpretive and educational programs at six State beaches and one State Park along the Channel Coast in Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties for more than a quarter of a century. Founded in 1984, the Friends make possible interpretive services that include kayak tours, Junior Rangers, Junior Lifeguards, campfire programs, school programs, brochures exhibits, and much more!

The Friends of Channel Coast State Parks have proven themselves to be a valuable ally as well as we seek to help people better understand and appreciate the priceless natural and historical resources along the Channel Coast. Join them by becoming a member! Visit their website at
