Giving to the Garden is an investment in a more sustainable, impactful Garden for the future. The need to protect and preserve California's native plants grows more urgent each year - among the 6,500 different kinds of plants native to California, 30% are threatened with extinction in the next 50 years. Preparing the Garden to meet greater needs in conservation and education is a priority now. Thank you for giving to the Garden today.
The Santa Barbara Botanic Garden fosters the conservation of California's native plants through our gardens, research and education, and serves as a role model of sustainable practices.
