The following represents current guidance for the UC Merced Natural Reserve System Merced Vernal Pools and Grassland Reserve (MVPGR).

Note: As the UC Merced campus transitions back to in-person activities, our COVID-19 restrictions are rapidly changing. Please reach out to the Reserve Director at MVPGR@ucmerced.edu for the most current Reserve visitation information.
