Service Learning Team

A School of Engineering Service Learning Team was formed in Spring 2014 to raise awareness about the new Merced Vernal Pools and Grassland Reserve by promoting informational and academic activities. The Vernal Pools Reserve team has been going strong for three semesters. Thirty four students have been part of the team. The team addressed communication, access, and nature interpretation needs of the new Reserve. A beuatiful, informative brochure describes the Reserve to visitors. One of the team's greatest accomplishments was the design and creation of an large interpretive sign. The sign was unveiled on April 16, 2015 on the 50th anniversary of the University of California Natural Reserve System. Funding for the sign came from the campus Natural Reserve System and the School of Engineering. To learn more about the team and their experiences working on these projects go to
