Widely regarded as a model botanic garden, the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden is a living museum and a member of the American Alliance of Museums, dedicated to research, education, and conservation of California native plants. As an accredited museum and botanic garden, the SBBG differentiates itself from being just another beautiful place with open space and pretty flowers. The Santa Barbara Botanic Garden is a living museum where collections-based research preserves California native plants and displays them in a beautiful setting.
Parking is free, and outside food is welcome. There are so many hiking trails and naturally landscaped areas to explore. Take a walk out to their research building, and take pictures of their beautiful views from the hillside. Your students will love learning about plants and natural habitats, as well as environmental conservation, at the Botanic Gardens!
