Santa Barbara Botanic Garden

From its inception in 1926 the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden has focused on preserving native California species and educating the public about the importance of conservation.

With a spectacular mountain backdrop to the north, a view of the Pacific and Channel Islands to the south, and oak woodland borders on the east and west, the Garden’s wildflower meadow provided a blanket of color in the foreground of every vista.

Over decades the meadow’s original design had been disturbed by encroachments from excessive paving and plantings inconsistent with its original design.

Now the process of returning the meadow to its historic state has begun.
