Humboldt Botanical Garden, Eureka

4.6
#7 of 9 in Parks in Eureka
The Humboldt Botanical Gardens Foundation was organized by a small group of Volunteers in 1991. The goal was to create an educational botanical garden in for the Northern region. From this small core of under ten people, the HBGF has grown to over 1,000 individual, family and business members. Thousands of people attend the organization's annual educational and special events.

From the initial desire to have several small botanical gardens in the Humboldt Region, the vision grew to encompass the passionate belief that the area had an opportunity to develop a world-class botanical garden. This belief was based on the unique HBGF garden site, the area's climate, which is on the edge between two worlds - Mediterranean and the Pacific Marine - that allows for very diverse groups of plants to thrive, and the presence of plant species unique to the region.

The not-for-profit Humboldt Botanical Gardens Foundation was incorporated in the State of California on January 27, 1992 as a 501(c)(3) public benefit, charitable corporation. The HBGF's mission is to:

Establish and promote an enjoyable and educational botanical garden accessible to everyone in or near Humboldt County and Northwestern California.

Work with primary and secondary schools, institutions of higher education, and others to promote the study, use and preservation of native and other plants.

Promote the use of botanical gardens by local garden clubs, botanical groups and others for developing botanical displays of special interest and for conducting botanical or horticultural programs approved by the Foundation.

  • What an incredible garden. So well designed & kept up. We wound up buying several plants. Wear your hiking shoes, there are lots of trails to cover
  • I had a great time hiking the trails.
  • It is relaxing and beautiful nestled in the mountains.
  • Meditative property. Lots of benches to relax surronded by trees. Love to walk the trails behind the main gardens. Epic view of Humboldt bay if you go to the upper portion of the property. A good place for viewing birds. A nice treasure to visit!
  • Many well kept walking paths in this garden. Bring a lunch and enjoy them all! Beautiful venue with so much color!
