Step 3: Pick up your plants


Before you come to the Arboretum Teaching Nursery for curbside pickup appointment, please complete the UC Davis COVID-19 Daily Symptom Survey. 

When you arrive, be sure to wear a face covering — this is mandated by UC Davis across campus. 

A staff member will take your name, ask that you stay in your vehicle and load your trunk with your order — please be sure there is enough room.

If you have any COVID-19 symptoms on the day of your appointment, you will be able to reschedule.
