The San Bernardino Valley Water Conservation Demonstration Garden is just over an acre of plantings and displays that showcase water conservation through a series of beautiful themed gardens and exhibits.




The Garden can be a learning laboratory for the dedicated gardener, a delightful place for an afternoon stroll, or a place to gather lots of information about water-wise, or Inland Empire Garden Friendly plants, while earning a little about our area's natural history, geography and climate.

While located on the Cal State campus in San Bernardino, the Garden was not built with any state resources. It was made possible by major gifts from three local donors: the San Bernardino Valley Municipal Water District, the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians and the Inland Empire Resource Conservation District. West Valley Water District. With additional donations from a variety of smaller donors and in-kind contributions of labor, supplies and expertise made the Garden a reality.
