Natural Reserves hit by fires

Three UC Davis Natural Reserves have been severely affected by the LNU Wildfire Complex; losses include the director's residence at Quail Ridge as well as all our tent cabins. Stebbins Cold Canyon, Quail Ridge Reserve and McLaughlin Reserve are now reopened for research (please contact reserve staff for more information), though Stebbins Cold Canyon remains closed to hiking and other recreation. Thank you to the many people have reached out to help! We will be identifying targets for resilient rebuilding and reopening very soon. In the meantime, if you would like to help, you can donate on the Natural Reserve System giving page.
