Arbor Day Celebrated

In spite of the cool April weather, several visitors came for the Arbor Day tour led by Bill Carlos.  One visitor was from South Carolina..  Another couple from Northern  California had read about the gardens in the AAA VIA magazine and decided to check it out. Coffee and donuts were provided by the Rancho San Rafael Botanical Society. Additional entertainment was provided by a visiting rabbitt and a Canadian goose nesting on the roof over the office.

 Fri. May 7th, 9:00-noon

Take a pleasant stroll through the Arboretum on National Public Garden Day. Join Arboretum's Bill Carlos, Horticulturist and staff on a guided tour of these magnificent gardens.

Meet in front of the Arboretum office adjacent to the Ranch House. Bring a camera and a note pad. Be prepared, wear walking or hiking shoes and dress appropriately.
