Why become a member of the
Friends of the Palomar College Arboretum?
The success of a campus Arboretum depends on funding and
volunteers. During the past 40 years, many people have contributed
their time and money to this endeavor. As of January 2011, our Arboretum is finally
looking like a real botanical garden.
It still needs a lot of work, including
wheelchair accessible trails and an irrigation system.
With the addition of the Cactus and Succulent
Garden, a campus landmark dating back to the early days
of Palomar College, the Arboretum has become an
impressive botanical collection.
But all of this would have never occurred without
dedicated people who really cared about the future of
