Natives in Bloom (207-142)
A Guided Walk with Trustee and Docent Mary Pitts

Friday, May 11th - 5:00pm - 7:00pm

WE WILL MEET AT THE MAIN GATE OF THE SAN FRANCISCO BOTANICAL GARDEN PROMPLY AT 4:50PM !


Come explore the Arthur L. Menzies Garden of California Native Plants at its peak bloom. The meadow is awash in the color of wild lilac, meadowfoam, poppy and iris. Breathe in the perfume of the Western azalea as you learn about our native plant collection and the ways in which ancient people used these plants to sustain their lives.

Our native collection is a dramatic representation of the varied habitats of plant communities of coastal California and adjacent regions, including these major plant communities: coastal strand, riparian woodland, freshwater marsh, grassland, chaparral, oak woodland, mixed evergreen, and rocky outcrops. Spend the afternoon winding through trails to learn about the importance of  these plant communities and California’s native plants.
