    the wilderness reserve

    Hello everybody, today I meet an example for the definition of the word "sanction" in a dictionary as follow:

    The authorities have sanctioned the use of the wilderness reserve for public use; many expect to see hikers and campers enjoying the park in the coming months.

    IMO, "reserve" should be "reserved", is that correct? If not then what grammar rule was applied in this case? Thank yo very much

    Re: Shortened Relative clause

    'Reserve' is a noun in that sentence. See definition B2 here.
