Field Trip: UC Berkeley Botanical Garden.

Studio One 2016/17

Project Description

StudioOne on tour at UC Berkeley ‘s Botanical Garden. Special thanks to the garden’s curator Holly Forbes and its director Eric Siegel for showing us around your amazing living collections of plants.

The 34-acre UC Botanical Garden is one of the most diverse landscapes in the world, with over 10,000 types of plants including many rare and endangered species.  Organized geographically, the Garden features 9 regions of naturalistic plantings from Italy to South Africa, along with a major collection of California native plants.  The Garden was established in 1890 and its living collections are invaluable resources for international research and conservation.

The garden’s mission is to develop and maintain a diverse living collection of plants, to support teaching and worldwide research in plant biology, further the conservation of plant diversity, and promote public understanding and appreciation of plants and the natural environment.
