Saving Rare Plants of CA with Holly Forbes

April 22, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

In honor of Earth Day, Garden Curator Holly Forbes will shine a light on the various ways the Garden is involved in native California flora conservation efforts. The Garden holds one of the largest collections in the world of California native plant species, including over 200 taxa on rare or endangered species lists. Holly’s conservation work includes a recovery project of the large-flowered fiddleneck, Amsinckia grandiflora, and saving the Baker’s Larkspur, Delphinium bakeri, from extinction. Join us for this celebration of some of the rarest of rare CA natives.
