Anticipation is growing about the installation of the Nature’s Gallery mural and courtyard! The Nature’s Gallery mural is a stunning work of art, composed of over 140 tiles hand-crafted by UC Davis students, staff, faculty, and community members. Each tile showcases a different drought-tolerant plant from the Ruth Risdon Storer Garden in the Arboretum or an associated insect.
The mural will stand in an inviting tree-lined courtyard between the Storer Garden and Arboretum Teaching Nursery. In addition to being a beautiful new entry feature at the Arboretum’s west end, Nature’s Gallery will also serve as an integral part of our youth and adult education programs.
When you visit the Arboretum, you’ll see construction fencing around the Nature’s Gallery location. Site preparation has started in anticipation of wall and courtyard construction this fall and winter.
