Please note:  Clearance Plant Sale purchases must be picked up by December 12.

Before you come to the Arboretum Teaching Nursery for your 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.

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