This is the new Año Nuevo Reserve research/teaching database. The goals are to:
Efficiently keep track of all approved research projects and teaching activities
Maintain a digital list of approved researchers with relevant contact information
Easily log visits to the reserve to allow the State Park to monitor current activities and the Reserve to track usage.
Easily identify people that do not have appropriate permission.
Please remember that all research projects conducted at Año Nuevo Reserve must receive prior authorization and all researchers/volunteers must be added to the research list after completing appropriate training/paperwork. At a minimum, everyone visiting the Año Nuevo Reserve must complete this liability waiver (for non-UC projects) or this worker's compensation form (for UC projects).
PLEASE NOTE: all visitors must be cleared by the UC Santa Cruz daily COVID19 symptom checker. Please visit this website for instructions:
