Living Landscape Adaptation Plan

Climate change has been described as the biggest threat to our planet, and for public gardens and landscapes that include horticultural plants that may be growing far outside their native range, it is a special concern. We must conserve, protect and plan for the long-term health of the landscapes inextricably linked to our campus identity, heritage and mission.

Campus planning leadership is working collaboratively to develop a 70-year plan that will allow us to transition the landscapes of UC Davis to a climate-ready campus. The Living Landscape Adaptation Plan (LLAP) is a bold first step. With this plan, the UC Davis campus can become a demonstration project integrating good science, community building and teamwork that will become a model for universities and institutions facing the same threats while planning for the climate of tomorrow.
