Young trees on campus are being watered by slow-release watering bags rather than sprinklers. This method saves at least 1000 gallons of water per tree on an annual basis.

On August 12, 2015, the Davis Enterprise featured a front page story written by journalist Clair Tam about how the campus is helping conserve water during our state’s ongoing drought.

If you missed it, take a moment to read it now. It gives a good overview not just of what the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden is doing to conserve, but our whole campus.
