Boyd Deep Canyon needs your help. We are supported in part with state funds, but this funding is limited. Gifts, grants, endowment income, and fees charged to users are of utmost importance to fund our operations.
Private donations work in concert with the state’s commitment and grant funding to help Boyd Deep Canyon—and all Natural Reserve System sites—continue to provide protected natural areas for research, teaching, and public service for future generations.
Our current project is the Tevis Research Center, which will provide a classroom, meeting room, and other academic facilities.
Your donations are tax-deductible and much appreciated.
Muth Nakayama Fund for Boyd Deep Canyon
Dr. Allan Muth and Violet Nakayama established this endowment to benefit programs, and maintenance and construction of facilities at Boyd Deep Canyon. Natural Reserve System reserves do not benefit from Operations and Maintenance of Facilities funding available to UC campuses. Most maintenance, renovation, and construction of facilities funding is usually left to the reserve manager. Facilities funding was Dr. Muth’s greatest recurring concern throughout his 35-year tenure as Boyd Deep Canyon reserve director. This endowment was established to help relieve the funding burden from his successors.
Donations to the Muth Nakayama Fund for Boyd Deep Canyon can be made in two ways:
