SDBG - San Diego Botanic Garden Herbarium (SDBG)

Our herbarium was established in 2019 as San Diego Botanic Garden began its science and conservation focus. Our herbarium encompasses c. 300+ specimens (and growing!) of mostly rare plants in San Diego and Imperial Counties but extends through the central coast as well. All of our specimens are preserved (pressed vouchers).
