Help raise funds for the UCSC Arboretum with holiday cheer! Many of the items for sale were created by our volunteers from the Succulent and Dried Flower Wreath groups. 

The UC Santa Cruz Arboretum is a 50-year-old treasure and beloved destination for the central coast and local community that seeks to inspire stewardship of the world's biodiversity through research, education, and the conservation of rare, endangered, and extraordinary plants.
