Leading up to and on May 5 our loyal fans, followers, and subscribers will be receiving more messages from us than usual from the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden because — like last year — we, along with 500+ non-profit organizations in our region, will be participating in our area’s Big Day of Giving and raising $5 million online almost solely from the support of our local audiences. The UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden’s goal is a bit more modest — $12,000, but that’s almost double what we raised last year.
By the way, your gifts helped us expand our free public programs including Nature Discovery Days, where participants of all ages can explore a variety of topics including ecology, biodiversity, sustainability, and more through hands-on activities and demonstrations. This year we want to do even more!
We hope you’ll be patient with all the messages leading up to the Big Day of Giving and choose to make an online donation starting May 5 at 12 a.m. midnight through 11:59 p.m. Gifts start at $25 and are made via a secure online site which you will be able find on our home page only on May 5.
