Welcome to the James San Jacinto Mountains/Oasis de los Osos Reserves and thank you for choosing us to conduct your research!
In order to start your project you need to register first with our Reserve Application Management System (RAMS) by clicking here and submit an application. If you already did it, Congratulations! Your application to do your research at the James and/or Los Osos has been approved and you’re ready to head to the field. Even though you might have listed possible dates of when you would do your field work at the Reserves, things change and your actual visits to the Reserves need to be registered so we know you are coming and can prepare for your visit. Thus keep in mind every visit you plan on making to either the James or Los Osos has to be reserved in advance through the RAMS system. Fortunately, you can reserve multiple visits at the same time. Making a reservation is easy and you will receive a email confirmation once your reservation has been approved. To assure that the dates you want to visit are open, please view our calendar.
Contact the Reserve Assistant Director, Andrea Campanella by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have problems making a reservation.
Overnight accommodations at Trailfinders Lodge include semi-private dormitory rooms, communal bathrooms with showers, kitchen with cooking supplies, desks, small museum with herbarium and collections, wireless Internet access within all our buildings and many outdoor areas, and access to Reserve databases. The following are the current fees applicable to reservations for staying at the James or day use of either site.
A $50 fee per day will be charged for no-shows or cancellations within 24 hours of expected arrival.
