Become a Pollinator, Donate Today  

Blooming to life in 2024, the Nature Trail will extend our mission outside the museum walls, green our city, and inspire visitors to plant waterwise gardens that support local wildlife.

You can be part of the biggest year in our history—and one of our most ambitious projects to date—with a gift to the garden. Your support will help create and maintain this free amenity for all Park visitors.

You can make a difference for San Diego’s plants and pollinators—even small things can make a big impact
