After nearly 50 years of supporting research, education, and serving the public, the UC Irvine Arboretum may be closing its current location North Campus (Jamboree and Campus Drive). UC Irvine is currently considering relocating the North Campus Arboretum to the main campus. Provost Enrique J. Lavernia appointed faculty and staff to the UCI Naturescape Advisory Committee to advise campus leadership on several topics, including a strategy for decommissioning and potentially relocating the Arboretum.The timeline for closure of the Arboretum’s North Campus gardens is uncertain, but we will update the estimated time of closure as we receive it. Thank you to those that have supported the Arboretum.
Guided tours of the Arboretum are still possible by contacting the Arboretum’s Collections Manager.
