Prepare yourself for an afternoon and evening of adventure into the backcountry of Santa Barbara that will end with a feast at one of our most treasured natural places. Join us as we transport you from Santa Barbara/Goleta (or come on your own) to the Santa Ynez Valley to spend the late afternoon and evening enjoying the amazing physical beauty of the iconic Sedgwick Reserve. Walking tours, local history, fine Valley wines and a gourmet dining experience highlighting the Valley’s local growers await you!
