Wild Campus is proud to be sponsored by the following organizations:

UC Davis Dining Services is committed to actively engaging in procedures, policies, and practices that foster sustainable solutions at the University of California, Davis. As a leader in providing healthy, well-balanced meals to the campus community and an enriched educational environment that foster a balance of mind, body, and soul, UC Davis Dining Services has developed an integrated sustainable food systems program in each of the campus dining commons, University Catering and several retail operations.

The UC Davis Arboretum was founded in 1936 to support teaching andresearch at the University of California. The Arboretum occupies 100 acres along the banks of the old north channel of Putah Creek, in California’s Central Valley. Our collections include 22,000 trees andplants adapted to a Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers and cool, wet winters. The plants are arranged in a series of gardens that represent different geographic areas, plant groups, or horticultural themes.

Putah Creek Council is dedicated to the protection and enhancement of Putah Creek and its tributaries through advocacy, education and community-based stewardship.We envision Putah Creek as a thriving corridor of native riparian and aquatic ecosystems connecting the Coast Ranges to the Sacramento River and the Delta. We envision a Putah Creek watershed community of people who value their creek and are committed to its stewardship.

The Putah Creek Riparian Reserve is a stream and grassland ecosystem, managed for teaching, research, wildlife and habitat protection. There are approximately 640 acres within the Reserve, with 380 at the Russell Ranch and the remainder on the main UC Davis campus.

The Department of Entomology at UC Davis began as an offshoot of the Department of Entomology and Parasitology at UC Berkeley. Entomology at Davis was closely entwined with the department at Berkeley for more than 50 years before it separated and became autonomous. Much of this early record is fascinating and it demonstrates how entomology has always been an integral part of teaching, research and extension on the Davis campus—in effect the department and the campus came of age together.

Thank you to our sponsors for making everything Wild Campus does possible!
