Abstract

Sedgwick Reserve has all the attributes of a world-class field site for university research and teaching, except that its facilities are inadequate to support high levels of use, particularly longerterm use.  The Sedgwick Reserve Infrastructure and Facilities Project (henceforth ‘the Project”) will create the infrastructure and facilities needed to serve the Reserve’s current and projected needs and to turn it into a world-class natural reserve and field station.  Phase 1 of the Project was supported by WCB Proposition 84 (henceforth WCB) funds.  Developing the infrastructure needed for Phase 2 is the subject of this proposal.  Phase 2 will further the Project by creating much-needed facilities for housing, office space, and camping and day-use support.
