About Our Reserve

The Blue Oak Ranch Reserve (BORR) is a member of the world’s largest network of university-owned and operated biological field stations and ecological reserves. The Natural Reserve System was established in 1965 to contribute to the understanding and wise stewardship of the Earth and its natural systems by supporting university-level teaching, research, and public service at protected natural areas throughout California.

BORR contains five square miles of oak woodlands and grasslands east of San Jose in the Bay Area.
