The primary focus of University of California’s Natural Reserves is to provide research and educational access. Sedgwick is one of the few reserves that has made itself accessible to the public.



All the standard information required in a scientific research proposal: title, principle investigator information, a brief introduction/summary of the project and research methods you plan to use to complete your project.
