Desert Collection Enhancement
The October “Month of Giving” has started, and we need your help to enhance our Desert
Collection at Fullerton Arboretum. There are currently no clear pathways in our Desert
Collection, which has resulted in habitat-destructing social trails. That’s why this
ROCK-tober, we are working on building rock-bordered trails throughout the area. This
will also help to protect the plants, control soil erosion and prevent the habitat
destruction of ground-nesting bees. Your donation will support this important project.
Thanks to a generous donor we have $30,000 in matching gift funds available. When
you make a gift, it will be matched dollar-for-dollar through $1,000. Help us reach
our goal of $10,000!
