Want to give back? Become a UCI Ecological Preserve volunteer! By donating your time, you can help maintain habitat for native wildlife by removing invasive weeds, reduce impacts from off-trail recreation, or plant native species! You can also work with UCI-Nature staff to share knowledge with the public on specific topics by developing an activity, or assist with monitoring to help track the ecological status of species and inform management decisions.

Participate in our 2019 Matching Gift Challenge.  In 2019 we are working to raise funds for fencing, signs, overlook, and staging area improvements.  These improvements will enhance aesthetics and promote responsible use and respect for the land. We are also interested in initiating funds for research scholarships and a part time Stewardship and Education Coordinator.
