Founded in 1959, our three acre botanic garden currently supports approximately 1400 different species of trees, shrubs and herbaceous perennials from the temperate regions of the world. The collection provides the University and Sacramento communities with a diverse palette of what can grow and bloom in our region with a little attention to exposure and drainage. Winner of this year's Legacy Award, presented by the Sacramento Tree Foundation, the Arboretum is utilized by classes in several departments and continues to offer free guided field trips to Sacramento's public schools. Currently it is upgrading the descriptive signage along its trails to allow casual visitors self-guided tours of the diverse collection and work continues on an interactive digitized map of the whole collection. Plans are also moving forward for the construction of an "open air " classroom or pavilion to be located in the center of the garden, providing University and visiting classes, as well as community organizations with a shady and aesthetically pleasing venue for meetings and instructional activities.
