The Fullerton Arboretum is a great resource! There are not many places where students can visit one site which houses numerous plant communities and have the opportunity to travel through each community to gain insight as to the plant types, climate and overall topography. Being able to experience the look and feel of the Mojave Desert and meander down a decomposed granite trail to the Woodland Forest is an unforgettable experience. My students will gain an understanding of the various plant communities that can be found in California as well as some of the plants within those communities. We will also have the opportunity to have one of the Arboretums special nature guides give our class a complete tour and educational briefing of the history of the site as well as some great information regarding the plant and animals found in this native areas.
