At Santa Barbara Beautiful, we believe that the aesthetics of a place matter. Since 1965, Santa Barbara Beautiful has funded the planting of over 13,000 city street trees, provided over $5,000 in grants to support local art and design projects, funded scholarships to students majoring in horticulture and architecture, and celebrated numerous individuals, organizations, and businesses that have demonstrated exceptional efforts to make Santa Barbara beautiful.
