BENEFITING: Santa Barbara Botanic Garden
EVENT DATE: Oct 31, 2014
Over 80 years ago the Garden’s founders planted redwood trees knowing they would never see the full glory of the towering grove we know today. Now it is our turn to make our gift to the future. The new Conservation Center, the buildings renovated into classrooms and a visitor gallery, and new and renewed garden displays will inspire generations to learn about and love California’s native plants ensuring the protection of our unique ecosystem.
California's native plants are more at risk than ever and we need your help to expand our efforts to educate the public and preserve these native treasures. The Seed the Future comprehensive campaign is very close to the $14 million goal and we need your support to take us over the finish line.
Your donation will help to:
- Renew and expand gardens to inspire visitors to care about natives
- Expanded research to address conservation threats
- Provide facilities for environmental stewardship
The Mericos Foundation wants to inspire you to show your support and has offered a $100,000 matching gift that will essentially double the value of your donation. Give before October 31st so we can win this match!
If you do not want to give online you can mail a check with Seed the Future in the memo line, to:

Santa Barbara, CA 93105
