From SF Botanical Gardens:
Travel the World in 55 Acres!
Wednesday, May 19, 2021
5:30 - 6:30pm PDT
Benefiting the Garden’s education programs and extraordinary global plant collections
While we won’t be able to feast together at the Garden this year, we look forward to celebrating this annual tradition with you online.
This past year has made us long for travel, so we invite you to travel the world in 55 acres at
the Garden. Our event starts with an immersive exploration of the Garden’s global collections. Keynote speaker Abby Meyer, executive director of Botanic Gardens Conservation International - US, will deepen our understanding of the critical role botanical gardens play in conserving global biodiversity.
Benefiting the Garden’s education programs and plant collections, which feature more than 8,000 kinds of plants, this special event will include some musical surprises. With schools closed during the pandemic, the Garden has proudly served as an essential outdoor classroom for thousands of children through Bean Sprouts Family Days, summer camp, and after-school programs. Your support will keep educational programs free and underwrite scholarships to our tuition-based programs. Now, more than ever, families need the Garden. That’s why we recently joined the Museums for All program which makes admission free to low-income families.
