Local residents can prepare their landscape for long-term water conservation by visiting the Friends of the UC Davis Arboretum plant sale on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The sale will take place at the Arboretum Teaching Nursery on Garrod Drive near La Rue Road on the UCD campus.
Attractive, drought-tolerant, easy-care, region-appropriate plants — including a large selection of California natives and Arboretum All-Stars — will be featured as part of the sale’s focus on “The New Front Yard.”
Friends receive 10 percent off their purchases, and new members may join at the door. New members also receive an additional $10 off as a thank-you for joining.
The event is free; parking is free and available nearby. For more information and directions, visit http://arboretum.ucdavis.edu/calendar.aspx or call 530-752-4880.
