Together, We Flourish!

Help us provide better access as a gift to the community this season! 

If you know about our “trashy past,” you may also know the landfill underfoot will continue to move and groove over time – no matter how hard we try to manage it. Visitors using walkers, wheelchairs, strollers or those with unsure footing cannot navigate the cracks and obstacles along the way. Additionally, some visitors find that the one-mile trek is too much to handle. As our new exhibits and plantings move deeper into the Garden, we need a solution to ensure everyone can make the trip.

Beginning this month, we are pleased to introduce a new accessibility shuttle for our Nature POP! exhibit, which will offer continuous rides, 7 days a week. The all-electric vehicle will be free-of-charge for everyone to enjoy, with priority granted to those with mobility challenges.

We’d like to ask for your help in raising $35,000 to give the shuttle a permanent home at the Garden. Together, we can find solutions to make this truly a Garden for ALL by adding these accessibility options through our Flourish Fund, a fund that supports all the ways South Coast Botanic Garden can cultivate more nature connections.

Help us raise this money by Dec 30, 2022 to give a great gift to the community in the New Year!

$50 would provide free shuttle rides for 64 people.
$200 would cover the cost of the shuttle for one day.
$500 would provide free rides for 640 guests.
$1,000 would cover the cost of the shuttle for 4 days
$3,000 would provide recognition viewed by approximately 50.000 riders annually

Donors at the $3,000 level and higher will have their name displayed on our new shuttle.
Any amount you can give will help us flourish together!

Consider a monthly gift, which is as easy as a subscription for you.  This type of recurring support adds up quickly and helps us plan as we keep the wheels on the shuttle rolling. All gifts will keep giving for years to come.
