Martin Quigley
Musings on the UC Santa Cruz Arboretum: What's Next?

After only six months as Executive Director of the UC Santa Cruz Arboretum, Martin Quigley is still discovering the rich history and collections present for the last fifty years.

With an increasing focus on California natives, Martin envisions a renaissance of the Arboretum's global reputation as a garden unique among Mediterranean climate zones with its collections of endangered California native plants, and a world renowned array of Southern Hemisphere trees from the other Mediterranean climate zones. The Arboretum grows the largest group of Australian trees outside Australia itself. Its mission is scientific, horticultural, and deeply humanistic.

Join us this evening with Martin as he presents his personal musings on the future endeavors of the UC Santa Cruz Arboretum.
