Outreach: K-12 and community
Three pillars of the UC Natural Reserve System mission are research, teaching, and exploring. Teaching and research are the principal activities at Stunt Ranch. However, the Reserve has a rich history of public outreach that encourages K-12 students to explore the habitat and scientific research conducted at the Preserve through a docent-led program. By encouraging children to explore, we believe students are provided a strong foundation to learn why research is important, how it is achieved, the power of scientific observation, and the importance of natural history.
Each year, thousands of such students visit Stunt Ranch as part of a formal program coordinated by the Cold Creek Docents, a division of the Mountains Restoration Trust (MRT).
