Quail Ridge Reserve

Safari tent

Set on a rugged and isolated peninsula just 45 minutes from the UC Davis campus, the Quail Ridge Reserve protects 2,000 acres of Coast Range habitat for research, teaching and outreach.  A hilltop field station provides a scenic base for classes, meetings and meals, and diverse overnight housing options are available to academic users.

The reserve is a unique partnership between the University and the Bureau of Land Management, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Bureau of Reclamation, and the Quail Ridge Wilderness Conservancy.

Quail Ridge Reserve is open only to approved users.  All visitors must have pre-arranged their arrival with the reserve director.
