DAM, MEADOWS, AND FUTURE: The Botanic Garden’s energy centers on The Meadow (seen above in the early days), but the history goes even deeper,
back to when dams — visited here by unnamed padres, Maunsell Van Rensselaer, and General William Lassiter — were built by the Chumash across
Mission Creek. Progress continues in the form of the John C. Pritzlaff Conservation Center (above right), opening in July.
