The files associated with the individual reserves contain species lists, correspondence, maps, administrative and maintenance files, newspaper clippings, and photographic materials. The inclusive dates of the collection are 1948-1999; however, the bulk of the material dates from 1962-1994. The administrative files are arranged in two series: 1) UC Natural Reserves System and 2) UCSD Natural Reserve System.
