What’s That Plant? at Stevens Park


Director of Education and Engagement, Scot Pipkin, will guide you on an easy hike on a local trail and introduce you to the common plants of this region. Don't worry if you're not good with names or faces--Scot will share stories of the plants' backgrounds so that the next time you're on a trail you'll feel a little more familiar with them, and maybe you'll pass their stories along to someone else.

We will meet at the main parking lot of Stevens Park at 258 Canon Drive in Santa Barbara. This trail is easy to moderate. There will be many other hikers, runners, dog walkers.


 Scot Pipkin was born and raised in San Diego, California. After attending UCLA and receiving a degree in Geography with an emphasis in biogeography, he has spent his career acquiring and sharing an understanding of the natural world that emphasizes the interconnections that surround us. This work has allowed him to inhabit some of the most beautiful and ecologically rich places in the Southwest, including Yosemite, the redwoods of the San Mateo Coast, Saguaro National Park in Arizona, and the Lincoln National Forest in New Mexico. From 2012-2016, he served as the Public Access Manager for Tejon Ranch Conservancy, leading wildflower and natural history tours through the San Joaquin Valley, Antelope Valley, and Tehachapi Mountains.
