Cal Poly Pomona is one of the most biologically diverse campuses in the CSU system. In addition to Rain Bird BioTrek, gardens, orchards and agricultural fields, biodiversity can be found in four ecological communities (coastal sage scrub, walnut woodland, oak woodland and riparian woodland). These habitats contain at least 100 species of birds, 39 species of mammals, 20 species of reptiles and amphibians, 261 species of plants, and countless species of insects and other arthropods.
