California Ecology and Conservation, UC Natural Reserve System
California Ecology and Conservation brings together undergraduates from across the UC system for seven weeks of intensive field studies at NRS reserves.
“Being here at Sedgwick has been so inspirational,” said Jennifer Adachi, a UCLA senior in the NRS course, whose Sedgwick project focused on acorn preferences in two bird species. “It’s spectacular. This experience teaches you a lot about what you like to do, and what you don’t. Coming out of this I think I will have a much more profound understanding of things that I will pursue later. Conservation is something that’s so important, and it’s something I’m going to dedicate the rest of my life to.”
