UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden

The UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden is a network of campus gardens, natural areas, and landscapes that include the historic UC Davis Arboretum, the main UC Davis campus landscapes, and the Putah Creek Riparian Reserve -- an endangered ecosystem along the southern edge of campus. Our gardens are free and open to the public 24/7/365. 


What makes us different

We use our landscapes to engage the public and showcase
the academic richness of UC Davis.

We invite the community to co-create in the design, creation
and care of our gardens.

We collaborate with environental agencies, faculty and scientiests locally and internally on research and teaching.

We demonstrate and share best practices in sustainable horticulture with the public.

We provide studens and community members with the resources and experience necessary to tackle important environmental issues worldwide.


In short, our purpose is to inspire human potential to help communities
and environments thrive!
