Channel Islands Boating Center

The Foundation was a key partner in the construction of the Channel Islands Boating Center in April 2013. The Boating Center provides educational and recreational opportunities for youth and adults in Ventura County, the CSU Channel Islands community, and others from the region. While the main focus is to teach boating skills and safe boating practices, the CIBC also provides other educational resources about our local marine environment. The lobby is filled with passive and interactive exhibits about the Channel Islands marine environment, natural history, and current preservation efforts. The public and groups are welcome to visit the CIBC.
