Established in 1926 the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden is the oldest public garden dedicated to the display, conservation, research and education of California native plants
  • The Garden is enjoyed by over 100,000 visitors per year
slide3
The spectacular setting offers panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and the coastal Santa Ynez Mountain range
  • The signature view is the expansive ‘meadow view’ axis and its spring wildflower display

Dr. Fredrick Clements, the Father of North American Plant Ecology, was the Garden’s first Director and established the design concept of plant exhibits within the California biome context
  • The redwood exhibit is the most popular visitor destination

Oak-Woodlands, which are the most common vegetation type in California, are amply represented in their natural state.

In June of 2003 a generous donor offered 80 acres to the Garden with the expectation that a new garden dedicated to display and education of world-wide Mediterranean flora would be developed
  • Transfer of ownership is in process
  • The property is located near Ojai, California, approximately 35 miles from the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden site
slide15
The existing 80 acres has established trails, meeting facilities, and numerous designed outdoor areas
slide18

Plants of western Australia such as Banksia, Xanthorrhoea, Doryanthes, and Hymenosporum are also well established

slide19
Future steps include:

 Continue the integration of Santa Barbara staff and operations into the Ojai site

  • Begin Master Planning
  • Secure collections of Chilean and old-world Mediterranean taxa
  • Apply for Conditional Use Permit from governmental agencies to operate as a public garden integrated with the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden under a common governance system
  • Market the site as the premier Mediterranean Garden of the United States
