  • We share this area with wild animals, such as rattlesnakes. Please be aware of your surroundings and respect their space.
  • Service animals only. Pets are not allowed anywhere on this campus, including the parking lot. Do not leave your pet in your vehicle.
  • No smoking allowed. No e-cigarettes either.
  • Please do not leave valuables in your vehicle.
  • No bicycles allowed in the gardens. Please park them in the provided racks.
  • Picnic in designated areas, and please pack out what you pack in.
