Santa Fe Botanical Garden

Santa Fe Botanical Garden The Santa Fe Botanical Garden features two sites on more than 55 acres: The Botanical Garden at Museum Hill, and the Leonora Curtin Wetland Preserve in La Cienega. Both sites are open to the public and offer events and education programs for all ages.
(84)

The Santa Fe Botanical Garden is an educational resource that connects people with nature and fosters respect and enjoyment of plants and conservation. Through exploration of our two sites, fun and innovative programs, volunteerism, and education, we provide opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds to be inspired by and learn from nature.

Mission: The Santa Fe Botanical Garden celebrates, cultivates and conserves the rich botanical heritage and biodiversity of our region. In partnership with nature, we demonstrate our commitment through education, community service, presentation of the arts, and the sustainable management of our nature preserve and public garden. The Santa Fe Botanical Garden has two locations - a Botanical Garden at Museum Hill in Santa Fe, and the Leonora Curtin Wetland Preserve in La Cienega.

We might be having a *little* too much fun going through photos from last month's Bio Reverie at Leonora Curtin Wetland Preserve. Check out this picture snapped of Spirogyra algae taken from under a microscope!

In many Asian countries, Spirogyra spp. is valued for human consumption, and is known as an important source of natural bioactive compounds for antibiotic, antiviral, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and cytotoxic purposes.📸: Max Bond

Crop Wild Relatives | Crop Science Society of America

Did you know that one in five plant species is facing extinction? Its Crop Wild Relative Week (Sept 22-29) and public gardens everywhere are on a mission to raise awareness about the power of these plants and the urgent action that is needed to protect North America's native plant genetic resources.

Biodiversity is the foundation of plant breeding and crop improvement. This week raises attention about these plants and their genetic resources for crop improvement and the longevity of our agriculture and food supply.

The wild relatives of food plants are threatened with extinction at the same time that our agricultural crops are increasingly vulnerable to climate change. These crop genetic resources are required to improve crops and develop new ones in order to adapt agriculture to a changing climate. Today's conserved species might be the crops of tomorrow.
