    Campus Natural Reserve: Where Learning Comes Alive

    Campus Natural Reserve: Where Learning Comes Alive

    The 400-acre UC Santa Cruz Campus Natural Reserve offers students the opportunity to walk outside their classrooms and study nature in nature. Better known as the “outdoor classroom and living laboratory,” the reserve focuses on engaging students in direct observation and study of the natural world while bridging concepts learned in the indoor classroom with unique hands-on field experiences. These transformative experiences function as a springboard into field work internships supporting various research projects in ecology, restoration, land management and conservation, forestry, and environmental science.

    Living Laboratories and Outdoor Classrooms at UC Santa Cruz

    The UC Santa Cruz Natural Reserve System supports long-term research and teaching on protected lands on more than 10,000 acres of natural lands at five natural reserves: Año Nuevo, Campus, Fort Ord, Landels-Hill Big Creek, and Younger Lagoon. Together, they function as living laboratories and formative outdoor classrooms for faculty, graduates, and undergraduates. Research at these reserves range from studying migratory patterns of marine animals, to understanding population dynamics of endangered species, to examining how invasive species and fire affect ecosystems.

    Younger Lagoon Reserve: An Outdoor Classroom for Coastal Research

    Younger Lagoon Reserve: An Outdoor Classroom for Coastal Research

    Younger Lagoon Reserve is one of the few relatively undisturbed wetlands remaining along the California Central Coast. Located on the UC Santa Cruz Coastal Science Campus, the natural reserve’s 25-acre lagoon and 47-acre "terrace lands" protect eight unique habitats, including freshwater marsh, saltwater marsh, riparian willow, coastal strand (back dune), coastal scrub, coastal grassland, seasonal freshwater wetlands, and the brackish lagoon. These protected habitats provide unparalleled opportunities for students to learn about the environment, implement field projects, obtain hands-on experience, and become actively involved in research and stewardship projects.
