Congratulations Greg Pongetti

Fullerton Arboretum is pleased to announce Greg Pongetti has accepted the position of Living Collections Curator for the garden.  Greg previously served as the Nursery Manager (2012-2014) and Advanced Gardener (2006-2012) at the Arboretum.

Greg graduated cum laude in 2006 with a BS in Biological Science from CSUF during which time he served as a Research/Field Assistant to Drs. Eugene Jones and Jochen Schenk.  His research included the collection and analysis of demographic data on the federally endangered plant ,Eriastrum densifolium ssp. Sanctorum (Santa Ana River Wooly Star) and he provided assistance in a pollination study of the California endangered plant, Chorizanthe parryi var. fernandina (San Fernando Valley Spineflower).

 

Greg looks forward to working with our volunteers and staff in supporting the Arboretum’s mission to be an outstanding botanical institution for all to enjoy.
