Why become a member of The Friends of the Edwin & Frances Hunter Arboretum at Palomar College?

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.

The Cactus and Succulent Garden is a campus landmark dating back to the early days of Palomar College. The Friends of the Edwin & Frances Hunter Arboretum at Palomar College has become an impressive botanical collection.  But all of this would have never occurred without dedicated people who really cared about the future of the Palomar College Arboretum.

Four Ways to Help Support the Palomar College Arboretum:

  1. Become a member of The Friends of the Edwin & Frances Hunter Arboretum at Palomar College.
  2. Become an Arboretum Volunteer
  3. Make a Donation to the Arboretum
  4. Become an Arboretum Committee Member

There are numerous advantages to a campus Arboretum:  It is a beautiful botanical garden with walking trails and benches, a place for outdoor lectures within walking distance of campus classrooms, a quiet and relaxing study and picnicking area for students, staff and the community. The sciences, photography, kinesiology, anthropology, art, performing arts, and communication classes have used the Arboretum as a place for field trips, class projects and research. The valuable coastal sage scrub preserves, archeological sites, and exchange programs have enriched student learning. The Friends of the Edwin & Frances Hunter Arboretum at Palomar College give two Palomar College student scholarships each year.
