California Condors
Santa Barbara Zoological Gardens
, 500 Ninos Drive, Santa Barbara
With the opening of California Trails on Earth Day 2009, the Santa Barbara Zoo became one of a handful of zoos to exhibit these highly endangered scavengers – the largest land birds in North America, with wingspans topping 9½ feet. The Santa Barbara Zoo’s condors are still part of the recovery program and wear wing tags that identify them as individuals. The lower the number, the older the bird.

Landscapes from the Permanent Collection
Wildling Museum
, 1511-B Mission Drive, Solvang
The Wildling Museum of Art and Nature has a small and diverse permanent art collection. The works in this exhibition are the majority of our painting collection with a few of our special prints included. Almost all of the works were received as gifts, for which we are very grateful. Works date from as early as 1918 to the 2010s and represent sweeping vistas like Henry Breuer’s large panoramic painting to more intimate moments, like Ray Strong’s small canvas of a flowering plum tree.
