 Natural Reserve System, UC


The UC Natural Reserve System (NRS) is a network of 39 protected wildland areas. Its reserves serve as a library of ecosystems that protects examples of most major California habitats. The largest university-administered reserve system in the world, the NRS encompasses more than 756,000 acres that include deserts, mountaintops, oak savannas, coastal wetlands, vernal pools, conifer forests, and much more. Its reserves have supported scientific research and teaching programs for more than 50 years.
 
The UC NRS Field Studies Program brings students to NRS reserves to help them gain a deeper understanding of the natural world. Immersion for days or weeks in these "classrooms without walls" allows students to study nature firsthand and acquire invaluable hands-on training.
