Most of us probably don’t think that much about the number of endangered plants in the United States, but in Southern California too many plants are at risk. The San Diego Botanic Garden and other gardens in the area banded together to take an active role in conservation with the help of the Center for Plant Conservation.

The staff and volunteers of the San Diego Botanical Garden are doing their part to ensure the native plants of the area are not lost forever. To learn more and see how you can get involved, visit their website:
