The James and Los Osos Reserves play an important role in increasing our awareness of the natural world we live in by being valuable areas for research and teaching. Any financial support you can give to the Reserves helps us fulfill this role and directly contributes to our efforts in teaching, research, and public service at reserve.
A current critical need is to raise money for the repairs needed on Lolomi Lodge. Lolomi Lodge was built by Harry and Grace James, for whom the Reserve is named, and symbolizes their momentous efforts in educating young people about nature. The Lodge is a cornerstone of the Reserve and after 66 years, does require some tender loving care. More details can be found regarding the James’ efforts here and if you want to donate to the Lolomi Fund, just indicate so on your check or in the appropriate place on line.
You may donate to the James Reserve by sending your check made out to the “UCR Foundation” and write in the memo line “James Reserve-200330.” Mail to the UCR Foundation, 1136 Hinderaker Hall, Riverside, CA 92521. If you want your gift to benefit a specific reserve (James or Los Osos) or a specific program, write the name of the reserve or program in the notes area of your check. For online donations go to https://advancementservices.ucr.edu/AdvanceOnlineGiving/search . Choose “College of Nat & Agr.
