Santa Barbara Botanical Garden celebrates Earth Month


Happy Earth Month!
It's always the right time to celebrate native plants and all they do for mother earth, but April has been deemed Earth Month, Native Plant Month, and Community Science month.
Earth Day takes place on April 22 and is recognized as the largest civic event in the world. The movement began in our own backyard in response to the 1969 oil spill, inspiring us to act towards the protection of the environment and focus on the need for conservation.
The Garden invites you to join us in celebrating uniquely beautiful Cal flora and take steps to make an impact in the face of a growing climate crisis. 

What You Can Do To Help:

Spend time in nature

Recharge at Garden this month. Let your child's imagination run wild in our Garden Casitas or explore the Garden through our flower-themed scavenger hunt. 
The Garden happily welcomes all dogs on leash, so bring your four-legged friend to get some fresh air. Please be respectful of our plants and others by cleaning up after your pup and keeping them on the trail.
Look for our designated "photo spot" chalkboard signs to find the best places to capture iconic photos of you and your loved ones.
Come by on Earth Day to find conservation tips throughout the Garden, native plant inspiration from our home demonstration display, or shop the largest selection of native plants in our Nursery. 
Get your Earth Day wildflower fix through a virtual stroll with Scot Pipkin, Director of Education and Engagement, as he Instagram livestreams in the Garden from 11am-12:30pm on April 22.
