Visit Putah Creek Riparian Reserve

Exploring this natural and untouched ecosystem is equivalent to entering a time machine to understand what the Arboretum must have been like well before the university arrived. A majority of the Reserve is open to the public for recreation activities, such as fishing, boating, swimming, and hiking.

Want to visit? Start your walk from one of the Reserve’s trailheads and gain an appreciation of this rare riparian habitat.
