Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden

Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden Review

Founded in 1927 by Susanna Bixby Bryant, a wealthy landowner and conservationist, the garden is a living museum and research center dedicated to the conservation of native-California plant species. You can meander here for hours enjoying the shade of an oak tree canopy or take a guided tour of the grounds, whose 86 acres of ponds and greenery shelter such specimens as California wild lilacs (ceanothus), big berry manzanita, and four-needled piñon. Countless birds also make their homes here.
