A Very Prickly Pear (Opuntia), BioTrek Ethnobotany Garden, Cal Poly Pomona

One of several gardens on the Cal Poly Pomona Campus. Although relatively small, this garden has a large collection of plants both outdoors and inside a sizable glass house.

“The Rain Bird BioTrek Project is an educational experience for visitors of all ages that emphasizes the need to share knowledge, values, and behaviors that support sustainability on a finite Earth. In its greenhouse, gardens, and stations, it provides interactive educational connections to the tropical rainforest, California’s indigeneous plants and people, and other ancient and present day habitats.”
