James San Jacinto Mountains Reserve

The James San Jacinto Mountains Reserve, a unit of the UC Natural Reserve System, is a 29-acre (120,000 m2) ecological reserve and biological field station located at an altitude of 5,200 feet (1,600 m) in a wilderness area of the San Jacinto Mountains near Lake Fulmor in Riverside County, California, United States.

The James Reserve property was purchased by the University of California Riverside in 1966 from Harry and Grace James.

In addition to acting as a protected natural area for teaching and research in the sciences, it is also available as an engineering testing ground for various sensor-related and ecosystem monitoring technologies.

The primary research group using the James Reserve at this time is the Center for Embedded Network Sensing. Over the internet, researchers, students and the interested public may unobtrusively visit and view nature via a webcam observatory, which includes an interactive robotic camera. Devices in the outdoor laboratory allow non-intrusive, around-the-clock monitoring.

The Director of the Reserve is Becca Fenwick, who is currently working on her Ph.D. at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California San Diego.

Overnight accommodations for researchers and school groups may be made for the on-site Trailfinders Lodge. Visitation is by permission only.
