There’s an event taking place on the South Coast this weekend that features art created from the ocean, and it benefits a wildlife nonprofit.

The Santa Barbara Sea Glass and Ocean Arts Festival features 46 artists from around the country.

The Holiday fire didn’t just displace thousands of people in Santa Barbara County.  Ot forced the evacuation of horses, pets, and hundreds of animals from the Santa Barbara County Wildlife Care Network’s North Fairview Avenue home.

The fire burned right up to the perimeter of the acreand a half facility, and singed some of the facilities, and contaminated ponds. 

The evacuated animals were moved to other rescue facilities in Santa Barbara County, and around the state.
