Welcome to the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden!
For over 80 years, the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden has provided a resource for our students and community members to learn about and gain transformative leadership experiences in environmental stewardship and education. Our hope is that this website will showcase these efforts and expand upon our ability to share how we are helping reimagine the university of the future with our campus partners as well as our entire community! Please browse the site and let us know if you have any question, comments or ideas.
