I met my husband on the UC Davis campus while we were students and spent many hours enjoying the beauty of the arboretum. It was always a respite from daily life. When our children were born, the arboretum allowed us to go hiking and biking with them in a beautiful safe place. As they grew, they enjoyed the different areas of the arboretum with friends. Now they bring their children here. I feel so lucky to have been able to live in Davis all these years and so grateful to all those who have worked diligently to maintain and improve the Arboretum for all of us to enjoy. These are my grandsons loving the path through the redwoods.
