Gifts from individuals, corporations and foundations are critical to supporting the mission of the UC Santa Cruz Natural Reserves and work in partnership with funding from the University. This public-private partnership plays a significant role not only in maintaining the Natural Reserve System but also in building the University of California’s reputation. Gifts in any amount are welcome for programs that benefit all of our reserves: in education, in research and in public outreach.
Your gift will directly support research, education, and stewardship activities on the Natural Reserves of UC Santa Cruz Scientists from all over the world conduct research at our reserves, research that is making a major contribution to the understanding of natural systems and the management of our local resources.
Projects for which we seek funding include facilities enhancements and replacements, technology improvements, environmental monitoring, resource inventories, and staff positions that provide technical support to all of our reserves.
