Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

The Desert Garden at the Huntington is a century old, and boasts one of the oldest and biggest collection of cacti and succulents in the world. A stroll through this 10-acre section of the beautiful estate's gardens will quench your thirst for the colorful and intriguing sight of over 5,000 species of desert plants. You probably can't rush out to San Marino right now, so in the meantime, enjoy these images from the Desert Garden--one of 14 themed gardens on the property--shot by LAist Featured Photos pool contributor delara-photos.
