Bayer hosted their annual community service day on Friday, October 7, at the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden. Through a donation of $19,000 and more than 130 employee volunteers, Bayer showcased its commitment to supporting pollinator health and habitat development by assisting in the planting of over 2,000 wildflowers, shrubs, and trees, completing a garden path and helping create a mosaic art feature that will soon be embedded in a pathway near the Arboretum Gazebo.
