Trans-California Pathway Project

What is the Trans-California Pathway?

The Trans-California Pathway is an outdoor arboretum of native California plants located on the south side of the Stanislaus State campus. The pathway is used as an outdoor laboratory and source of material for biology classes, an educational attraction for the University and the community as a whole and a valuable field trip destination for students. It’s an opportunity to study in person what would otherwise be a classroom abstract. It's also a peaceful walking path where students and campus neighbors can stroll among trees, plants, birds and insects.

Did you know?

  • The project began with the vision of the late Stanislaus State Professor Wayne Pierce and the planting of 300 Valley Oak seedlings in 1988. Dr. Pierce guided the project through its first two phases before his death in August 2008, and an additional 800 plants completed the still-maturing pathway in 2012.
  • Donna Pierce, Professor Pierce's widow, has worked tirelessly to see the pathway to completion. 

How can you help now?
