Use these resources to 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.
Meant to be tucked inside the NRS brochure, these inserts provide a brief description of each program and a menu of giving options. Each is the size of one brochure column and is printed on both sides.The Systemwide Office can ship you copies; please contact Donna with your request.
Retractable banners are 33.5 inches wide by 84 inches tall. There are four designs. Please contact Donna if you would like to borrow one or more.
After downloading pdfs for these five designs, you can have them printed at a local copy shop.
The map flyer shows reserves listed by administering campus. For higher resolution versions of the NRS map, maps with reserves numbered north to south, or maps with reserve names next to location dots, contact Kathleen.
The Fact Sheet offers information about the NRS by the numbers, including acreage, grant funding, user statistics, publications, etc.
These handouts describe the NRS reserves administered by each campus. There are nine designs, one for each campus. Download the pdfs from this page.

A few ways to engage the public at a booth or information table, or 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 reserve research projects
- 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 banners and handouts about reserves
- 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 or created at the reserve
- Dinner at a reserve–– tours, music, wine, and stargazing can engage volunteers, donors, and neighbors
