Wolverines visit UC Davis
On Wednesday, April 3rd, 20 of Ms. Snider’s environmental science students went on a field trip to the UC Davis Arboretum. Also chaperoning were Ms. Cave-Sosa and Mrs. Rohrer.
The students received a formal tour by hosts Maya and Mia. The tour took in a variety of native plants, and students learned about pollinators such as butterflies and hummingbirds and the important roles they play in keeping our plants alive and thriving.
Part of the tour involved walking through the school’s plant nursery, and since UCD was preparing for an upcoming native plant sale there were many varieties of plants out to see.
After the formal tour, everyone had lunch near the oak grove and then took a self-guided tour of the grove itself. In addition to trees, students and staff observed horses at the nearby veterinary medicine school as well as birds and insects.
It was an extremely relaxing experience, overall.
And the very best part is that ANYONE can visit the UCD Arboretum any time, for free. This is land that all Californians own!
