Friends 50th

Round Up for the Friends!

When you shop at the Davis Food Co-Op in September you can support the Friends, too! The Davis Food Co-op has selected the Friends of the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden as the recipient of this month’s Round-Up at the Register fundraiser!

Fifty years ago the Friends of the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden helped save the Arboretum. For decades since then, they’ve supported our favorite local nature escape, its free family programs and the development of its student environmental leaders.

Stories of Trees, People and Community: Celebrating the Friends 50th Anniversary

By utilizing the Friends’ personal archives, memories, and newsletters, we were able to create a dynamic Story Map detailing the history of trees throughout the historic, 100-acre Arboretum. This map specifically highlights our largest tree collections, the Peter J. Shields Oak Grove and the T. Elliot Weier Redwood Grove, as well as other notable trees throughout the collections.

Wyatt Deck Renovation

We are pleased to announce that the project to replace the two wooden decks of the over 50-year-old Wyatt Deck is now complete. The fences are down and it's ready to welcome visitors back!
