The Arboretum Ambassadors have won their fifth consecutive gold level Community Service Award from the UC Davis Community Service Resource Center for their transformative work in environmental education. 

The Arboretum Ambassadors, a Learning by Leading team focusing on environmental leadership, design participatory learning experiences that engage the broader community with the Arboretum and connect our visitors with both nature and culture. They invite families and learners of all ages to campus and provide high-quality education events that improve environmental awareness and ecological literacy.
