We are fortunate to work with artists and science lllustration students on projects that detail the diversity of flora, fauna, and landscapes at UCSC Fort Ord Natural Reserve. Please enjoy the selections below, and reach out if you would like to help contribute to our library of fantastic work! We can place students in interships, and also give reserve access to illustrators who would like to document life at the reserve. Please communicate with the Reserve Manager for more details.
