Student Opportunities

The UC Natural Reserve System provides many opportunities for student support.

How You Can Help

Gifts from individuals, corporations, and foundations are critical to supporting the mission of the UCSB Natural Reserve System and working 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, research, and in public outreach.

We present an exciting opportunity to connect with the UC Santa Barbara Natural Reserve System through our fourth offering of a Virtual Fall Seminar Series! This year, the six-part seminar series will kick off on October 11, and each presentation will take place virtually, via Zoom, each Wednesday evening from 7:00 – 8:00 PM PT, ending on November 15.

The 2023 seminar series will showcase the latest programs and research across UC Santa Barbara’s seven extraordinary reserves. Each weekly seminar will focus on a particular Reserve, and will feature a paired presentation with the Reserve’s Director – sharing highlights and updates from the Reserve – and an expert scientist, artist, or educator who focuses their research or teaching at that Reserve.
