Do you love native plants? Do you want to spend more time outdoors? Consider joining the UC Davis Arboretum and Tree Davis for a new volunteer training focused on native plant gardening! Training will include an introduction to the native plants of this region and basic gardening, tree care, and restoration techniques. Volunteers will play a key role in the installation, establishment, and ongoing care of plantings in the Arboretum’s new California Native Plant GATEway Garden and the Putah Creek Parkway (an adjacent City of Davis greenbelt) in the City Arts GATEway.

Volunteers will learn new skills, contribute to an exciting community project, and share fun, food and camaraderie. Trainings will include a combination of instruction and hands-on projects and will be held on Fridays from 9 am to noon starting on October 25th and continuing through mid-January.

Spaces are limited and applications are due by October 16th.

Applicants selected for the program will be asked to contribute a training materials fee.
