Our reserves are now open to limited use by researchers and university-level classes

To address the ever increasing threats of tree mortality and wildfire, and with funding and project support from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, the Valentine Camp Reserve is engaged in a fuels reduction project aimed at increasing the health and resilience of the forest and decreasing the risk of fire to not only this important research and education site, but also to the Town of Mammoth Lakes, which surrounds the reserve. Fuels reduction work started in Summer 2020.
