Coal Oil Point Reserve Professional Review and Guide
"Coal Oil Point Reserve has several coastal wildlife habitats set aside for research, education and preservation. The 117-acre ecological study enclave, managed by UCSB, has coastal dunes, eucalyptus groves, grasslands, a salt marsh and a 45-acre lagoon. The trail parallels the bluffs from the western edge of Isla Vista to the reserve. Devereaux Lagoon, with a mixture of fresh water and salt water, provides several coastal lagoon habitats. The slough is a bird-watcher’s paradise with a wide variety of native and migratory species."
