The safety of the public, our visitors, volunteers and staff is our highest priority. Given the guidance from the CDC and Governor Newsom, the Fullerton Arboretum will be closed, and its respective events canceled until further notice. We will continue to monitor the status of COVID-19 and will take necessary precautions and adjust our operations as needed.

Field Trips

The environment, science and local history are at the core of the Fullerton Arboretum’s mission. Treat your students to a field trip to our 26-acre living classroom.
