Local residents are invited to join naturalist Steve Daubert and explore the ecology and evolution of butterflies during a tour of the California Native Plant GATEway Garden, newly built at the UC Davis Arboretum’s east end, just behind the Davis Commons shopping center.
The free event, which will show participants how the Arboretum functions as a butterfly preserve, will begin at 11 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 14. Attendees of all ages are welcome to gather at the garden trellis.
Walking or biking to the event is encouraged, because the Davis Commons parking lot is for shopping center customers only. Other parking is available in nearby public parking lots.
