Into The Wild Wednesdays: Fullerton Arboretum

What’s up, everyone, and welcome to another edition of Into the Wild Wednesdays! If you’re looking for a place to have a nice morning or afternoon stroll and you’re in the North Orange County area, visit the Fullerton Arboretum and Botanic Garden.

It lies on the Cal State Fullerton campus, but it’s free to public. It is complete with huge, gnarly trees, a large variety of flowers and cacti, and plenty of areas for chillin’ out, maxin’, relaxin’ all cool with the resident ducks.

We drove around and ran a lot of errands this particular day, but as soon we reached the gardens, there was a sense of…tranquility.  A charming little waterfall greeted us, and the trail quickly opened up to little grass fields and streams.  People were even harvesting fruit, which made the walk…quaint!

Also on the garden grounds is a place called Heritage House.  It was the home of Dr. George C. Clark, a pioneer physician from Fullerton, which was built in 1894, saved from abolishment and is now a museum to feature his medical contributions–super cool.

The arboretum also features various special events and classes throughout the year.  Coming up this Saturday, March 31 is a do-it-yourself composting class from 10:00am – 11:30am.  It is free to residents of Fullerton, Brea, Santa Ana, Orange, and Buena Park.  If you are not a nearby resident, there is a fee of $5 (members) or $7 (non-members).

You can also catch food, BBQ, and beer festivals in the summer and exciting events for the Halloween and Christmas seasons.

If you’re in the area, you best stop by!
