Learning by Leading Program update 2015-2016

July 13, 2016
We believe that students learn best by leading.

Members of the Friends of the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden, in addition to other loyal supporters, helped us provide internships to the over 80 students participating in our Learning by Leading Program over the 2015-16 school year. Here is a recap of how these students added richness to our landscapes, improved our outreach efforts, and leveraged staff resources.

 

Picnic Day 2016

May 24, 2016

Just about every year leading up to Picnic Day, the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden interns and employees design a float around that year’s  theme. This year’s float celebrated the uniqueness of the Arboretum and Public Garden with the overarching theme of “Cultivating our Authenticity.”

Learning by Leading GATEways Outreach interns, Sarah Richer and Craig Kennedy, volunteered to take the lead on brainstorming creative float ideas. These students, along with multiple students involved in our Learning by Leading Program, made the entire project a success.
