This program revolves around hands-on activities and field trips with participants referred by the Housing Authority of the City of Santa Barbara (HACSB) Resident Services. 
Third grade teachers are encouraged to apply for their students to participate in these two days of living history, held in honor of the founding of the Presidio on April 21, 1782.
Discover Santa Barbara this summer by excavating the fort that founded our city in 1782.  Learn how archaeologists study and interpret clues to reconstruct the history of Santa Barbara. 
Where We Are From began in 2019 as a way to encourage seventh-grade students to think about the histories of migration and immigration in Santa Barbara and how their own personal experiences fit into those histories.
