Cal Poly Pomona

Hillside with California black walnut trees

Across the road from the Ethnobotany Learning Center, on the hillslope leading up to the Kellogg West Conference Center, are the remnants of a grove of southern California black walnut trees (Juglans californica). At one time, the hills on the south side of the Cal Poly Pomona campus held some of the best walnut woodlands in the region, but many of them have been destroyed by expanding development.
