CNPS San Diego 2024 Native Garden Tour

April 6 - April 7

It’s Our 10th Anniversary!

Embark on a journey through Poway, La Jolla, Del Mar, and Solana Beach. Discover exclusive private gardens teeming with San Diego’s captivating native flora and fauna.

Step into the gardens of Dennis and Pamela Mudd in Poway and Jim Smith in Del Mar—founders of Calscape, now part of CNPS. These stunning landscapes embody Calscape’s mission, inspiring Californians to embrace native plants, conserve water, and revitalize our natural landscapes.

Our theme, “Planting Animals,” reveals the intricate connections between native plants and wildlife. Uncover fascinating stories about select animal-plant duos—from butterflies to bees and more.

Join the 2024 CNPS San Diego Native Garden Tour, celebrating nature, conservation, and the profound impact of native plants. Let the beauty of San Diego’s native gardens inspire your journey toward a greener future.


The tour gardens are situated in two distinct areas within San Diego County—one along the coast and the other inland. Each area is open for visitation on separate days, and your ticket allows access to both.

  • Saturday, April 6, from 9AM to 4PM: Explore gardens in Rancho Bernardo, Poway, Miramar Ranch North, and Scripps Ranch.
  • Sunday, April 7, from 9AM to 4PM: Discover gardens in La Jolla, North Clairemont, University City, Del Mar, and Solana Beach.


  • Regular Price Tickets: $40 – Available through April 7th, 2024.
  • Free Entry for children aged 17 and under!

Every ticket includes a tour booklet that will be mailed to you in early March and serves as your access pass for both days. People who have purchased tickets after March 1st will be able to pick up their booklets at the March 20th CNPS San Diego chapter meeting or Will Call gardens during the tour.
