Bay Area Bountiful

Born to Be Wild: Quarryhill's Conservation Quest

The Quarryhill Botanical Garden — located in Glen Ellen, California — has become a base station for international conservation efforts and a living laboratory for scientific researchers and students. A tranquil refuge from our increasingly urban way of life, the garden is a lush cornucopia of Asian plant life grown from wild seed during the past quarter century. This North Bay Bountiful segment highlights the garden’s efforts to conserve the rare and endangered maple Acer Pentaphyllum. (Director-Producer: Joshua Dylan Mellars)
