National Parks Under Attack
This Web site doesn't like to take political stands, but now it is necessary.

The current administration wants to reduce the size and number of National Monuments and allow oil drilling and mining in National Parks for the first time since the system was established. If you prefer trees and streams to oil wells and pipelines, contact your representatives in Washington NOW and tell them to protect these Crown Jewels of America.

Places Earth extends sympathies and hopes to both the people fighting to restore their lives in Puerto Rica and to those who’s lives have been taken or disrupted by the shooting in Las Vegas. Also to hurricane victims in Texas, Florida, and other areas of the Gulf region. Also to the fire victims in California. So many disasters in short time, all made worse by climate change.

State Parks, Historic Sites, and Museums need your help.

Throughout the country, state parks, historic sites, museums, and similar institutions are struggling to continue operating. Because of general financial problems, many of these institutions are operating on a reduced schedule or in danger of closing. Some are being forced to sell off artifacts and property. Many will not weather these hard times without your help.

Places Earth urges everyone to support these vital and important public resources any way you can. Please donate your treasure, time, and talent. Write to your governor and other elected officials telling them to find a way to keep state parks open. It will be your loss.

Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden

The first question you might ask is why 86 acre Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden is in Claremont and not Santa Ana. The simple answer is that it was moved from its original location in Santa Ana. The gardens are at an elevation of 1,350 feet and are divided into three regions, Indian Hill Mesa, the East Alluvial Gardens, and the Plant Communities.

Susanna Bixby Bryant recognized the need to conserve the diversity of native plants. She established her "wild native garden" in 1927 in Orange County. The gardens were relocated to Claremont in 1951, adjacent to Claremont University. The garden is the largest botanical garden dedicated exclusively to California native plants.

Location:
1500 N. College Ave.
Claremont, CA 91711

Support this Web Site

I hope that you find this web site helpful. It started because of my love for Architecture and interest in History. I don't allow paid advertising (but this may change). This web site is for your benefit and enjoyment and I make no profit on it. For ten years it has been supported primarily from my regular paycheck as a Set Designer and there haven't been many the last few years. I can no longer run it without help. Alternative funding is needed. A non-tax deductable donation helps cover the cost of operating this web site and may be made to Kesign Design Consulting through PayPal.
