A group exhibition by the 
Botanical Artists Guild of Southern California

in the Arboretum Library

The Botanical Artists Guild of Southern California has an exhibit in the Arboretum Library running from October 2021 - January 2022; free with Arboretum admission and to Arboretum members. Our Southern California landscape is hot and dry during the summer months, with little or no rainfall. This BAGSC group exhibition in the Library at the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden showcases cacti, succulents, California Natives, and other plants that grow in this environment and are adapted to both heat and low water supply.
