There will be a very limited number of reserved free parking spots available on a first come first serve basis directly in front of the Arboretum Teaching Nursery.  Since parking is very impacted, we encourage you to walk, bike or carpool. If you drive and find the Teaching Nursery lot is full, we recommend trying the far eastern end of the Putah Creek Lodge (PCL) parking lot; parallel parking along Garrod Drive south of the vet school, or any of the lots surrounding the vet school (#50, 51, 56). A loading zone will be available near the nursery so you can leave your plants, get your car then drive by for pick-up. Parking in campus lots requires a valid permit or you may purchase a daily pass for $10 in any visitor lot.

Can't make it? Attend one of our other sales September 28, October 12 or November 2.
