Sculpture Garden Scavenger Hunt (PDF)

Established in 2011, the museum’s garden was designed by landscape architect Frederic Warnecke. The garden’s elements were chosen to evoke the landscape of Sonoma County: its rolling hills, grass, and trees. Plants, such as the olive and ornamental plum trees, reference the region’s agricultural heritage.
