San Diego County has more biodiversity than any other county in North America and, along with the rest of California, is among the top 10 biodiversity regions on earth. The mild, Mediterranean climate—hot dry summers and cool, wet winters—and varied landforms create a number of distinct habitats, including: beaches, salt marshes and lagoons, coastal sage scrub, grasslands, chaparral, oak woodlands, stream sides, mixed conifer forests, freshwater marshes and meadows, and desert.
Join us for a long weekend in San Diego—our first PHS Weekender Tour*— as we explore diverse public and private gardens and parks from the Pacific Ocean to the Anza Borrego desert.
Locally hosted by PHS Board Member Scott Borden, in cooperation with the San Diego Floral Association and the San Diego Horticultural Society.
*Weekender tours are locally hosted using well-located mid-range hotels. These shorter tours have larger group sizes and lower pricing while maintaining the high standard of quality sights and visits found in longer Pacific Horticulture Society tours.
