Summer Sips at Botanical Garden
Now in its seventh year, Summer Sips, the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden’s wine and cheese lecture series, brings together the local community for talks about native wildflowers, carnivorous plants, Acorn woodpeckers, and more! Each lecture begins with a wine tasting paired with delicious appetizers, and conversation with the local sponsoring vintner in the Garden Courtyard before adjourning to the Blaksley Library for featured presentations.
