We are extremely proud to present the San Diego Botanic Garden 2022 Annual Report which so clearly demonstrates how our Garden is improving people’s lives while protecting the natural world! This past year, the Garden has continued its amazing growth trajectory. We have welcomed over 260,000 visitors to the Garden, educated over 20,000 students and adults, and grown our plant collections to include over 11,000 plants representing over 5,000 species. Our Science and Conservation programs are safeguarding plants throughout the region while advancing human well-being through the study and use of food and medicinal plants. Our Exhibitions and Events programs present world class horticultural displays such as World of Orchids and incredible family experiences like our smash hit Lightscape holiday show. Our Education programs enrich the lives of children and adults by inspiring curiosity and exploration of the natural world. And, as always, the Garden remains an amazing place to visit and learn about plants all year long.
We are deeply grateful to the large army of people who make the Garden grow: members, donors, volunteers, staff, and our many community partners. You are our greatest assets as we garden to improve our world.
