McLaughlin Natural Reserve


Private gifts to support the McLaughin Reserve strengthen our ability to protect the land, actively restore landscapes, provide outreach programs, and support student research and instruction.

Friends of the reserve express their support for ecological research and education in a variety of ways. You may select a resource to direct your gift. A few examples are:  

  • A new endowment for outreach support
  • A new endowment for graduate student support or research fellowships
  • Any number of special projects, e.g. restoration project.

Unrestricted and special-project gifts are also extremely important for retaining the quality of our program over time.

We would welcome the opportunity to talk with you. Your gift will make a difference for our students and build a sound future for our program.
