About the Exhibition
In the outdoor ethnobotanical garden, discover more than 60 native California plant species and examples of their past and present uses. Designed by landscape architect Matthew Kennedy (Ponca), the 7,000-square-foot space comprises seating and relaxation areas, a wetlands cove, pond, waterfall, basalt columns, and a California Oak tree. An interactive digital guide offers detailed information about the garden’s many elements.
