Launch the Learning Center
Join our community campaign to increase public engagement and empower student environmental leaders
The UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden has exciting news! Thanks to a generous estate gift honoring Elizabeth Mary Wolf, we are building an Environmental Learning Center at the west end of the Arboretum, inside the Arboretum Teaching Nursery. Supporting the people, programs and features to make the Environmental Learning Center come alive was the focus of our “Launch the Learning Center” campaign from April 22 through May 5, 2022.
With our spring campaign to "Launch the Learning Center" complete, we are so thankful for each generous donation! If you would like to give to the Elizabeth Mary Wolf Environmental Learning Center, gifts can still be made via the link below.
What will the Elizabeth Mary Wolf Environmental Learning Center be like?
The Elizabeth Mary Wolf Environmental Learning Center will enrich the west end of the Arboretum as a dynamic hub for people and programs. Its main feature will be a spacious multi-purpose room designed with open flow to the Arboretum Teaching Nursery courtyard.
This indoor-outdoor facility will serve as a public program space, a classroom for visitor and volunteer events, and a program staging area for students in the Arboretum and Public Garden’s innovative environmental leadership program — Learning by Leading™️. In addition, The Learning Center will provide offices, a kitchenette and bathrooms for students, staff, volunteers and event participants.
The opening of the Elizabeth Mary Wolf Environmental Learning Center will support an expanded calendar of year-round public programs and usher in a new era of increased public engagement at the Arboretum Teaching Nursery for members, families and the public.
