South Coast Botanic Garden Receives $12,000 Conze Grant

The South Coast Chapter of the CNPS is proud to announce that the South Coast Botanic Garden (SCBG) is the latest recipient of a Conze Grant in the amount of $12,000.  SCBG will receive the grant over a two-year period to support the purchase and installation of native plants in the pollinator garden, which will also include non-native plants which attract bees and butterflies.

The SCBG had nearly 250,000 visitors in 2023 and has become a premier destination for people from all over the South Bay and California.  The South Coast Chapter Board considers  that a demonstration garden showing the use of native plants side by side with conventional dry-garden plants will provide a great example for gardeners about the use of native plants in the landscape.

Conze Grants support both community gardens and large institutions that share an aligned goal of using native plants, which support our native insects, small creatures, and birds that share our environment.
