"One of the nation's great arboretums, in our own backyard" - CSUF Provost Caroline Thomas

When you donate to the Fullerton Arboretum, you support conservation and a scientifically relevant and diverse living collection right here in our own backyard.

Thanks to a Fullerton Arboretum donor, we are offering a dollar-for-dollar match. That means your contribution will be doubled! 

grass and weeds obscuring the pond, pathways narrowed by plant overgrowth and invasive weeds overtaking perennial and mediterranean plantings.
Rosa minutifolia is a rare and threatened plant in California and its' only occurrence is in the far southwestern corner of San Diego county.  It is more common south of the border in Baja California where there is less coastal development.  Arboretum staff and volunteers propagate this plant to make it more widely available and protect the plants growing in native habitats.

More rare and threatened plants:

Solanum vespertilio
Freylinia visseri
Ceanothus megacarpus var insularis
Salvia brandegeei
Aloe pillansiiTriteleia clementina
Crossosoma california
Arctostaphylos catalinae
Berferis nevinii
