The application deadline for the Summer 2019 offering of the UC Natural Reserve System field course, California Ecology and Conservation, is approaching! Applications can be found here and are due on February 5, 2018 so please spread the word!
This relatively new program, launched in Fall 2015, has been a tremendous success. Over 250 students from across the UC system have gained strong independent scientific research skills while immersed in the training grounds of the UC natural reserves, from Big Sur to the Mojave Desert, from coastal redwoods to California grasslands to high altitude bristlecone pines. Check out this video to get glimpses of what students are calling the most rewarding experience in their undergraduate careers.
