Donate to this fund

Join with us to foster a new half-century of community engagement at Wyatt Deck, a gathering and education hub in the heart of the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden. Since the 1960s, Wyatt Deck’s expansive open deck areas and benches have served everyone in our community as an outdoor gathering place, a nature-based classroom, a spot for special events and simply a peaceful place to rest and experience nature.
      The university is investing significant funds this year to replace the deteriorating wood decks at Wyatt Deck with new decks in an accessible design. Donations from generous donors like you will bring the updated Wyatt Deck to life. Community gifts will fund visitor-friendly features such as a new orientation kiosk and new demonstration plantings around the reconstructed Wyatt Deck and will also support free student-led public education programs at Wyatt Deck.

The updated Wyatt Deck area will benefit thousands of people each year - public visitors, members, community volunteers and students - with improved visitor access to year-round education programs focused on sustainability and the environment.

Join other community donors in supporting the Arboretum and Public Garden’s mission to help people and environments thrive.

You can give right now using the DONATE button above. Thank you!
