THE DOWNLOAD: Hidden Pipes, Virtual Arboretum Tour

By Cody Kitaura/Dateline on July 7, 2020 in University

There’s a lot going on beneath the surface at UC Davis — the maze of pipes that normally stays hidden underground has been exposed by the Big Shift project to switch from steam to heated water piping. Get a glimpse of the kinds of pipes that can be found underneath one’s feet in the above graphic, which can be downloaded as a larger PDF.

Catching up with an international Aggie

Brynton Lemar ’17 has been collecting quite a few stamps on his passport after graduation. The former Aggie basketball player has played professionally in France, Hungary and Poland, and last month he sat down virtually with Aggie announcer Scott Marsh for a conversation about what he’s learned and done. Hear the full interview in the above video, or read dispatches from Lemar’s travels in the Davis Enterprise.

A new virtual tour can teach you and your children about the Arboretum without having to leave the house. The Arboretum Explorer Virtual Tour, designed for elementary school-aged children, will includes four lessons: Arboretum Features, Pollinator Paradise, Waterway Wildlife, and Learning from Nature. Each lesson showcases a different part of the Arboretum and Public Garden and is supplemented by interactive activities that children can do in their own home or yard.

Read more about the tour on the Arboretum and Public Gardens website.
