Get Involved

Like many other California facilities, the Reserve has been adversely affected by State budget cuts and depends on contributions to fulfill the Sedgwick family’s vision of creating “a conjunction of learning and land.”

There are many opportunities for you to contribute your time, talent and financial support to the Reserve. 

To hear about our public hikes and events sign up for our newsletter here.

If you are interested in volunteering at the Reserve, please go here for more information about opportunities. Our volunteers have extraordinary access to the Reserve and receive invitations to all of our special events.

If you would like to help Sedgwick succeed with your charitable contribution, gifts of any amount are welcome. Make a gift online now

Your tax-deductible gifts to support Sedgwick’s operations keep the Reserve staffed, its buildings maintained, and our programs humming.

See the current Wish List for other opportunities to contribute goods to Sedgwick Reserve.
