Benefits of Visiting the Fullerton Arboretum

Fullerton Arboretum offers a variety of learning opportunities to students of any grade level but in particular to third grade students who are studying about different environments, such as oceans, deserts, tundra, forests, grasslands, and wetlands.
A field trip to the Arboretum will allow students to explore some of these environments first hand. The Arboretum is home to many plants from the deserts, the Mediterranean, and the Woodlands. The students can also look closely at Chaparral, plant species that we find around us and learn how it is related to Southern California fires.
Another subject matter that the students can learn about at the Arboretum is composting and its benefits to our gardens and our environment. With more than 4,000 different plants, the Fullerton Arboretum will provide an opportunity for the students to understand the diversity of the flora and fauna from the world over.


  1. Honestly, I didn't know that plant species are related to Southern California fire. I want to go to the Arboretum to learn about it more.

  2. I used to come to the Arboretum to do reading when I was doing my undergrad. It really is a very peaceful and beautiful place. There are so many different species of plants to see all in one place. It's a fantastic resource for teachers here in Orange County.
