Interpretive Exhibits

As you tour the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden, look for educational exhibits in our major demonstration gardens and collections. These exhibits answer common questions about sustainable horticulture practices, gardening with native plants, and California’s unique climate, ecology, natural history and more.

Our visitor-centered approach to educational exhibits is nationally recognized and based on best practices in informal education and museum studies. We employ teams of UC Davis experts, students, staff, and members of the public to create our signs and evaluate their success at attracting visitors, holding visitors’ attention, and communicating their intended message.

All of our exhibits are available for download on this page.
