University of California Botanical Garden

The Botanical Garden was established in 1890 by E. L. Greene, the first chairman of the Department of Botany. In the 1920s the garden was moved to Strawberry Canyon with a landscape design by J. W. Gregg from the University's Department of Landscape Design. The garden was organized on a geographical basis in settings resembling native habitats. There are over 12,000 different kinds of plants from around the world displayed over 34 acres.
