Help keep our Arboretum and Public Garden spaces open

UC Davis GATEway Garden

UC Davis GATEway Gardens

The UC Davis GATEways Project (Gardens, Arts, and The Environment) is a master planning framework for the Arboretum and Public Garden that envisions the campus landscape as a portal into the campus, to welcome visitors and showcase the creative work and spirit of inquiry at UC Davis. These gardens were created in collaboration with campus and community partners and feature multi-layered learning experiences that inform visitors about the important ideas and complex issues UC Davis scientists and scholars are tackling.


UC Davis Horticulture Innovation Lab Demonstration Center

The UC Davis Horticulture Innovation Lab Demonstration Center — a place where students, faculty, and staff can test new horticultural tools and demonstrate best practices for growing fruits and vegetables, particularly those helpful to small-scale farmers in developing countries.

Nature’s Gallery Court

The UC Davis Nature’s Gallery mural is a stunning work of art composed of over 140 colorful ceramic tiles—hand-crafted by students, staff, faculty, and community members—each depicting diverse drought-tolerant plants or insects found in the Arboretum’s Ruth Risdon Storer Garden.
