This area to the east of Eliot Circle includes two large, old giant sequoias that were planted by a group of student workers in January of 1937. The trees were transplanted from a nursery on the north side of the canyon. One of the students on the grounds crew, Marshall Cronyn, later returned to the college to work as a Chemistry professor from 1952 to 1982 and as provost from 1982 to 1989.

The California Bay beside the Physics building was planted by Biology professor Bert Brehm, who brought it up from Paradise, CA around 1968.
