More Mesa – Santa Barbara, California
More Mesa, located at the western edge of Santa Barbara, California, is a 265 acre pristine bluff top meadow overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It is the last undeveloped such property of this size in the area. For years it has been a nature preserve, beloved by locals who come to walk, bike, swim and enjoy its incredible beauty. It is also home to myriad varieties of local plants and animals.
More Mesa has been eyed by developers for years, but at the moment remains a natural sanctuary. A recent listing offers it for sale for the grand sum of $65 million dollars, truly a staggering amount. But due to our deep love of this beautiful and irreplaceable land, we have started this site in the hope of helping to turn at least part of magnificent More Mesa into public land for generations to enjoy.
Please help, get involved, donate and tell your friends, especially if they might be the generous type!
Please check back as we develop our partnerships and strategy.
Just up the hill from More Mesa, in the foothills above Santa Barbara, is the beautiful San Marcos Foothills Open Space. This land was sucessfully preserved as public land in the Spring of 2021 through generous public donations.
Thank you to the Santa Barbara Foundation for your excellent work!
