Mission Statement

The UC Davis Arboretum is a public garden, a living museum, an outdoor classroom, and a beautiful place for active recreation or peaceful contemplation. Established in 1936, the Arboretum occupies about 100 acres on the south edge of the UC Davis campus. The gardens are open to the public for free every day of the year. With over 4,000 different varieties of trees and plants, the Arboretum is a major source of horticultural information for inland California.

Description

The Davis Arboretum is a living museum of plants adapted to the local Mediterranean climate, including an important collection of California native plants. Home gardeners visit the Arboretum to gather ideas from our demonstration gardens of low-maintenance, water conserving plants. Studens and teachers use our plant collections and natural site for research and study. Visitors come to attend classes, enjoy guided tours, wander along the winding paths or just sit and enjoy the view across Putah Creek.
