The Refugio Oil Spill, One Year Later RSVP
Location: Center Stage Theater
751 Paseo Nuevo, Santa Barbara, CA 93101
Time: 6p invite, 7p discussion begins
A year ago, a corroded pipe operated by Plains All-American burst along the Gaviota Coast, a pristine coastline west of Santa Barbara. It released a river of crude oil into a creek that empties into the ocean at Refugio State Beach.
The beach may be cleaned up, but the story of the Refugio oil spill is not over. Join KCRW’s Jonathan Bastian as he leads a lively discussion with local environmental and oil experts on major issues like criminal and civil liability, wildlife restoration, pipeline regulation and the history of oil production along the Central Coast
