Chair Share

There is a new spot for anyone who may need a break and de-stress while strolling through UC Davis Arboretum. Chair Share currently includes about 10 (mostly) red Adirondack chairs. Studies show that even a short time outdoors can reduce stress and improve mood, among a variety of other social and well-being benefits. This goal of this pilot program, launched and managed by Learning by Leading students in Campus Planning and Environmental Stewardship, aims to encourage our community to spend more time outside by providing enticing amenities. In addition to chairs, Learning by Leading Arboretum Ambassadors will be tabling nearby to lend out picnic blankets, watercolors and frisbees, answer questions about the Arboretum and Public Garden, share information about the importance of "Nature Rx" and more!  Take a photo and win prizes through June 3! Campus Location: Lake Spafford. Location of Event: UC Davis Campus. Cost: Free. Event Type: Free Events. Health and Wellness. Outdoor Events. Student Organized Events. Presented by: UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden. Friday, May 27, 2022, 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM.

Sheepmowers at Work

The UC Davis Sheepmowers are back in a new location: the Chemistry Mounds near the Silo. Haven Kiers, assistant professor of landscape architecture, is doing research to determine if sheep allowed to graze on campus turf can eat grass and weeds, fertilize and control pests as well as, or better than, using conventional landscaping methods. She invites the public to spend some time in nature, watching the sheep do their thing. Spring quarter schedule (grazing hours 9 a.m.-3 p.m.): Wednesday-Friday, March 30-April 1 , Monday-Wednesday, April 25-27 , Wednesday-Friday, May 18-20 , Wednesday-Friday, June 8-10, Learn more about this research project.
