VISIT CAL'S WORLD-CLASS PLANT COLLECTION
You may ha ve heard it before, but it's still true: the UC Botanical Garden represents one of the most diverse and valuable plant collections in the world (and the only botanical garden in the world with a view of the Golden Gate Bridge). The Garden is open every day from 9 am to 5 pm and is always free to students, faculty and staff. So, take a hike, ride your bike, or hop on the campus Hill shuttle (a short 5 minute ride from the Hearst Mining Circle every 30 min) up Centennial Drive to visit our garden - your garden - the UC Botanical Garden.
