To Our Community: A message from Director Kathleen Socolofsky

Fri, April 10, 2020
We continue to care deeply about the health of our community and slowing the spread of COVID-19 is our highest priority. For that reason, we are asking all our visitors to follow proper social distancing guidelines if you are visiting the Arboretum and Public Garden spaces such as the Arboretum proper and the Putah Creek Riparian Reserve.

Reminding our community to do their part

It is crucial that everyone going out in public prioritizes adhering to social distancing above all else, which means skipping popular destinations, opting for more local neighborhood or less crowded areas.

We hope you and your families are all in good health. We care deeply about the health of our community, and slowing the spread of COVID-19 is our highest priority. For that reason, and in light of the recent campus and statewide orders to shelter-in-place, we are canceling all public events, including our plant sales, until further notice.
