Adopt-a-Block - Isla Vista is a densely populated community with large amounts of street waste. Without proper management, waste run-off pollutes our community, oceans & beaches. Adopt-A-Block (AAB) encourages investment and involvement in the Isla Vista community. Community members volunteer in regular clean-ups to prevent pollution. Through AAB efforts, Isla Vista continues to be an environmentally safe and beautiful community. The Adopt-A-Block Program is sponsored by Goleta West Sanitary District.

Children's Recreation Programs - The Children's Recreation Programs, created for "at risk" youth in Isla Vista, focus on youth development and building the external and internal assets all youth need to succeed. Please call The District office at 968-2017 for more information.

Community Gardens - The Community Gardens in Estero Park were one of the original projects of the District established, in 1986, with the goal of teaching and encouraging gardeners to use organic methods to grow vegetables, herbs and flowers. The District offers garden plots and water to community members for a nominal quarterly fee. Gardeners provide tools and hard work. Contact the District for a demonstration tour or to put your name on the waiting list for a garden plot.

Graffiti Abatement - Primarily funded by donations from Santa Barbara County Public Works Department and the UCSB Office of Student Life, IVRPD administers and facilitates the Graffiti Abatement Program as a community service to help fight blight in the community. The Graffiti Abatement Program is also sponsored by Goleta West Sanitary District.
