Become an Author


Building Community Resources:
Learn how you can become an SBTC author in a few easy steps. We are building a community of outdoor enthusiasts who would like to share their experiences, stories and information about anything outdoors in Santa Barbara County.

If you’d like to share recent news, report on trail conditions, add your trail description (hike, men bike, trail run, equestrian ride, or other), add some interpretive information — or whatever! — here’s what to do:

  • Email Us About Your Interest. Let us know you are interested in becoming an Author and we’ll upgrade your account so you can begin to post stories, add galleries and upload images.
  • Go through the Video Lessons to learn everything you need to know about posts, galleries and images so you’re ready to add your first post.
  • Log in and get started!!
