The University of California, Merced is seeking a Reserve Director for the Merced Vernal Pools and Grasslands Reserve (MVPGR).
The MVPGR is one of 39 sites that comprise the UC Natural Reserve System (NRS), a network of protected natural areas encompassing more than 756,000 acres throughout California. Founded in 1965 to provide undisturbed environments for research, education, and public service, the NRS contributes to understanding and wise stewardship of the Earth. The MVPGR consists of approximately 6500 acres of vernal pools and grasslands at the base of the Sierra Nevada adjacent to the UC Merced campus. Established in 2014, it is the first natural reserve in the San Joaquin Valley and home to numerous endangered species. The land set aside for the reserve is part of the mitigation for the campus and is integral to the growth of the campus. With the reserve contiguous to campus, there are many opportunities to integrate the reserve programs into campus research, activities and curricula. The Reserve Director will have a key role in developing reserve practices and traditions.
