A message from Director Kathleen Socolofsky to our community

To our community:

We hope this Leaflet finds you and your family doing well in these uncertain times. Your health and safety, and that of our staff, continues to be our highest priority while we confront the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you to those who have been observing the latest public health and safety guidelines while visiting the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden. We ask that all our visitors do their part to keep themselves and others safe in our campus landscapes.

We have placed new signs throughout the Arboretum and other campus landscapes reminding visitors to practice physical distancing, wear face coverings (when physical distancing is not possible) and follow other guidelines.

We also want to remind everyone that the whole campus landscape is part of the Arboretum and Public Garden. We encourage you to seek out other scenic locations on campus to reduce crowding in more heavily visited areas, such as on narrow Arboretum paths and at the Putah Creek Riparian Reserve. For an overview on how to safely enjoy your visit to the Arboretum and Public Garden during this time, see our new Planning Your Visit During COVID-19 page.

Lastly, community support provided by members of the Friends of the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden is critical during these uncertain times. Your annual membership gifts help us sustain our gardens for everyone. Thank you, Friends members!

Sending wishes of health and safety to all! We're in this together!
