Access Our Impact Reports
Every few years we compile a bird’s-eye view at the work we’re doing to conserve native plants and habitats — from our education and horticulture programs to our conservation work. These impact reports highlight some of our biggest wins along the way — from our backyards to the backcountry across California. Thank you for helping us continue to make an impact through your support of the Garden!
