Tiny Taxa Doing Big Things – Santa Barbara Botanic Garden Conservation Symposium

January 20 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Sometimes in life, it’s the little things that make all the difference. That’s true in nature, too.

The web of life is beautiful and complex. From the “belly plants” forming a miniature forest to feed the food web and the myriad of microscopic organisms holding our soil together to the tiny midge flies pollinating the cocoa trees that make our chocolate – everything, regardless of size, has a job to do and a niche to fill.

Come celebrate the diversity of life with us and discover the many ways we depend on the itty-bitty organisms we often don’t even realize are there. Hear about cutting-edge technology being used to understand these organisms and the relationships between them and learn more about what you can do to help conserve this wondrous world.
