Besides being a educational resource, the Arboretum offers a respite from the flat farmlands and suburban sprawls of the Valley floor. It's perfect for walks, picnicking, studying, observing wildlife and an incredible variety of plants ranging from mosses to great trees. There are educational programs and tours, as well as entertainment such as the annual Battle of the Bands on Picnic Day. For more information visit the Arboretum's web site and the Davis Wiki's informative entry.
This gallery contains 54 photos taken by myself over a period of twenty years showing some of the variety of Arboretum landscapes through the seasons.
