Would you like to spend more time outdoors? Would you like to learn more about the environment? Are you looking for a way to fulfill a New Year’s resolution to give back to the community? Consider volunteering with the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden! It’s a rewarding place to spend your time while learning new skills and meeting new people.

We are seeking new volunteers to join our gardening and habitat restoration teams. Training will be offered this winter and include a combination of expert instruction and hands-on projects. There will be a $20 materials fee due at your team’s first scheduled training date.

GARDENING VOLUNTEERS work in teams on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday mornings to help maintain and beautify Arboretum and Public Garden landscapes. Each team focuses on a different area; volunteers work in collaboration with horticultural staff.
Training dates: Thursdays, Feb. 2-Mar. 9, 9 am–12 pm.
