Submit a Casitas Design

Santa Barbara Botanic Garden is accepting applications for its 2024 Backcountry Casitas program. Whether you’re an architect, contractor, design-build team, artist, hobbyist, or student, we’re looking for interested parties to help build nature playhouses that encourage the community – especially families – to get outdoors and play in the natural world.

Early 2024 we will be selecting up to four designs which will be installed in the Backcountry section of the Garden in 2024. We’re looking forward to seeing your creativity.
