Celebrate the Arboretum's 50th Year!
UC Santa Cruz Arboretum's 50th Anniversary Jubilee and Fundraiser.
Sunday, September 20, 2015 4:00 - 7:00 p.m.
in the Arboretum's beautiful Australian Rock Garden and Picnic Area.
This community event will bring together environmental stewards (like you) to honor the Arboretum's foundation and toast its future.
Fred Keeley, who has a long record of public service and statewide leadership on environmental issues, will be emcee and auctioneer.
Please join us to:
* Honor Director Brett Hall and volunteers Phyllis Norris, and Marie Beckham (representing over 115 years of dedication to the Arboretum);
* Applaud exceptional UCSC students working at the Arboretum and leading the way for our future;
* Bid on auction items, including consultations in your garden by Arboretum curators; guided trips to extraordinary areas; mature King Protea; student support, and more. Proceeds from the auction will be used to hire students to work and learn in the garden. Every $3,000 enables us to hire one work-study student part-time for one quarter.
* Taste great wines poured by local boutique wineries, enjoy seasonal appetizers from local caterers, and desserts donated by our local gourmet bakery The Buttery;
