Arboretum Bench Dedications 

The UC Davis Arboretum offers a variety of bench dedication options. Select from benches already positioned in a scenic location, or choose from new bench sites available in our Mary Wattis Brown Garden of California Native Plants, Australian Collection, Peter J. Shields Oak Grove or other select areas.

New garden-style benches dedicated in the Arboretum are manufactured from durable, sustainably harvested hardwood and feature a contoured slatted seat and backrest, smooth edges and a weather-resistant steel frame. The brass dedication plaque is inset into the wood and includes the message of your choice.

Campus Bench Dedications 

A perfect tribute to any member of our UC Davis community, the campus offers a variety of bench dedication location options. Select from benches already positioned in a memorable location, or choose another meaningful site to place a new bench. (Please note that new bench locations will need approval from our campus Landscape Architect. A no-charge consultation is included with each bench dedication if necessary.)

Benches on our main campus are manufactured of durable, white powder-coated metal.
