The District maintains approximately 37 acres of protected natural open space and vernal pools. These lands provide Isla Vista residents, students, and visitors with opportunities to observe and learn about native flora and fauna. During the rainy season, water gathers in the vernal pools and attracts a wide variety of migratory birds. Canada geese, White-tailed Kites, Great Horned Owls, hawks, falcons, Black Crowned night Herons, Great Blue Herons, Egrets, and various species of songbirds are frequently seen in the open spaces. These properties play an important role in a semi-contiguous string of riparian and freshwater open space preserves that run along the coastal mesa, providing a vital wildlife corridor.
