Leading the Way

“As a former trustee, long-time docent, and legacy society member, I see the Garden as an essential leader in not only the conservation of California’s wild, but as a pillar in the health and well-being of our community. Families have long trusted the Garden as a place for outdoor exploration and learning, and for forming an important connection to our natural world. I give to the Garden as an investment in our collective future.”
– Carolyn Kincaid

ProtectingCalifornia’s Biodiversity

A gift to the Garden protects the biodiversity and resilience of the California ecosystems on which we all rely. As a center for world-class scientific research, the Garden is a leader in the conservation of native plants and habitats of the California Floristic Province with an impact stretching from Baja California to Monterey and the Sierras with significant work on the Central Coast and Channel Islands. As climate change increasingly threatens our landscapes, the Garden urgently needs your help to safeguard California’s native plants and ecosystems.
