2023 Holiday Guide

As the cool, crisp weather rolls in and seasonal items deck the aisles of stores, we've got the holidays on our minds.

The Arboretum and Public Garden has resources and inspiration this holiday season for spending quality time by yourself or with loved ones, for giving back through volunteering, for gifts, for preparing for spring planting and more in our 2023 Holiday Guide. 

Girl Scout Patch Program Recognized

The UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden received recognition at the Girl Scouts Heart of Central California, or GSHCC, inaugural annual fundraising event, “Gather and Give,” on October 20, 2023 at the Old Sugar Mill, in Clarksburg. The memorable evening celebrated the essence of what it means to be a Girl Scout, emphasizing the importance of programs that enhance the well-being and leadership growth of girls, while raising funds to make it possible for more underserved girls to participate in Girl Scouts.

Preparing for ‘The Phenology Garden’

In partnership with UC Davis' Department of Entomology and Nematology distinguished expert, Dr. Emily Meineke, we have started laying the foundation for the creation of a Phenology Garden to examine how alterations in water availability affect interactions between plants and herbivores, like insects.
