Reservation Required

We will begin a phased re-opening next week, following County and State requirements and CDC guidelines. We look forward to providing a safe, peaceful and serene outdoor experience for our communities during these challenging times. We will open with updated measures in place to ensure the safety of visitors and staff, including timed-ticket entry, limited visitation, touchless ticket sales, increased sanitization and social-distance policies, among others. For the first phase, we will be open to a limited number of visitors Wednesday-Sunday, between the hours of 8 am - 1 pm and 3 pm - 8 pm. For the first Wednesday and Thursday of this gradual reopening, May 20 and 21 respectively, CalBG will open only for Garden members and volunteers. Starting Friday, May 22, the general public will also be invited to visit the Garden. Visitation will be on a limited basis and requires timed-tickets, which will be made available through our website: www.calbg.org. We will send an email message, post on our social media accounts and update our website as soon as these timed tickets are made available for both members and the general public.

We will be asking all visitors to follow new social-distancing policies, including the wearing of masks, avoiding contact with other guests and staff, exiting at the proper times and following other safety guidelines that are in place.

These dates, times and policies are subject to change. CalBG will follow County and State guidelines as we work together to ensure the safety of garden visitors, staff and our larger community.

Thank you so much for being part of our community. We look forward to welcoming all of you back to California Botanic Garden.
