Join us on Monday, December 3 at the OVLC office to hear a presentation from the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden (SBBG) about their efforts to protect rare plant species across the state. Following the presentation, the Garden’s staff will train you to prepare seeds of rare plant species for storage in the Garden’s conservation seed bank.

There will be a 30-minute presentation, followed by a short training, and then we will seed clean for the rest of the event. Volunteers don’t need to bring anything – SBBG will bring everything you need. Everyone attending the training will receive a free pass to the Santa Barbara Botanical Garden.

Attendance is limited to 12

To register for this event, please contact Marti Reid at or (805) 646-6852 ext 2.
