Every January the public is invited to the UCR Botanic Gardens to attend the annual Rose Pruning Demonstration, which takes place in one of our Rose Gardens. Botanic Gardens staff, volunteers and local experts demonstrate how to prune hybrid tea, floribunda, miniature roses and climbers, and are eager to answer questions and teach guests how to prune roses.
Come out and learn how to take care of your roses, and you may even win a raffle prize.
All vehicles parked on campus are required to have a valid parking permit at all times. The Community Parking Program will allow guests to register their license plate and park for free in Lot 13 Red when they arrive on campus for this event. Guests may also park in Lot 13 Blue without a virtual parking permit.
