A brief description of the wildlife habitat program, policy, or practice:

UC Davis has a natural habitat program, which includes the Putah Creek Riparian Reserve and the Russell Ranch Habitat Area, totaling about 660 acres (together they equal 12.4% of the land holdings of UC Davis). These two areas include preserved and restored lands, and permit research and teaching uses, as well as public access at the Putah Creek Riparian Reserve. In addition, UC Davis partnered with local governments and the state Department of Conservation to purchase an expanse of land for agricultural preservation.
