Andree Clark Bird Refuge
If you live in Santa Barbara, there is a good chance that you have heard about the bird refuge. What you may not know is its full name which is the Andree Clark Bird Refuge. The Andree Clark Bird Refuge is located at 1400 East Cabrillo Blvd. and is known not only for the beautiful birds that live there, but also for the amazing running/biking/skating path that surrounds it (this is the part that Ian Filippini Santa Barbara enjoys the most).
The Andree Clark Bird Refuge is a man-made freshwater marsh and lake that is appropriately right next to the Santa Barbara Zoo. It is 48 acres of open space with 29 of those acres being the lake. There are three islands located within the lake that provide places for the birds to make their homes. Ian Filippini Santa Barbara loves the many opportunities there are for bird watching around the refuge.
There are over 200 species of birds that live in and around the bird refuge at any given time. There are also turtles and other wildlife that can be observed while on the trails around the bird refuge.
