Nat Talk

Native Plants for San Diego Gardens

In this talk, Nan Sterman discusses what makes a native plant native, the habitats that native plants come from, which are easiest to grow in San Diego’s gardens, how to grow them, how to use them in the garden, and how to mix them with other plants.

Museum doors open at 5:30 PM and the talk begins at 7 PM. Food, beer, and wine will be available for purchase at the Flying Squirrel Café before the talk. After the talk, join Nan for a signing of her book, Hot Color, Dry Garden, available for purchase at the Museum store.

Men in Black

Sep 20, 2019

While hundreds of thousands of men and women are rushing Area 51 to ‘see them aliens’, we’re offering a less – how do we way – ‘deadly’ alternative by screening the 1997 alien comedy classic, MEN IN BLACK, starring an out of this world Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. We’ll be honoring all things extra-terrestrial, so feel free to dress appropriately!
