In order to look toward the future, Claremont’s Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden (RSABG) is digging through its past.
After several years of work delving into the garden’s archives, staff at the botanic garden present their findings through their latest exhibition “Where They Grow Wild,” a collection of artwork reflecting the history of southern California’s wildflowers.
The RSABG exhibit is one of 3 displays under the greater theme of “When They Were Wild,” a collaboration with the Theodore Payne Foundation for Wildflowers and Native Plants and the Huntington Library.
