Mike Bush, Arboretum and Botanical Gardens expert, will lead a guided walk of this outdoor living laboratory with its unique plants from the world’s five Mediterranean climate regions – California, Chile, southern and southwestern Australia, South Africa and the Mediterranean basin. This diversity of plants provides attractive habitats for numerous birds and other wildlife. This is an ADA accessible walk.

The Arboretum is closed to the public on Sundays so we will have exclusive access. If you have never visited the Arboretum, you are in for an amazing morning of birding at this eBird HotSpot.
