These resources are meant to help you increase awareness about your reserve and the NRS among students, faculty, and the general public. We've printed up brochures and postcards, created downloadable maps and flyers, and produced large banners you can borrow to draw attention to your booth or event.

Here are a few ideas for engaging the public at a booth or information table, or want to engage students or the public at campus or reserve events.
- student poster session featuring research projects that have taken place on reserves.
- faculty, researcher and/or manager lectures, TED-style talks, or 5-10 minute “lightning talks” about specific research projects on the reserves.
- a "virtual field trip” presentation featuring various reserve species, environments, and activities.
- Hikes or guided nature walks on reserves, especially those near campus
- Flora, pelts, bones, mounted specimens, fossils, and rocks arrayed at an interactive "touch table."
- table with NRS display and info about reserves–– postcards, fact sheet, newsletter signup sheet and flyers (Mildred E. Mathias Graduate Student Grant Program, NRS California Ecology and Conservation course, etc.)
- slideshow of video and/or photos from reserves displayed on a computer monitor or projector screen. Could be played in the background during your event or serve as the focus of talks
- performances and displays of art inspired by and created at the reserves
- dinner at a reserve–– tours, music, wine, and stargazing can engage donors and neighbors of the reserve.
