The UC Hopland Research & Extension Center is a multi-disciplinary research and education facility in California’s north coast region. Celebrating our 60th anniversary during 2011, we are stewards of more than 5,300 acres of oak woodland,
grassland, chaparral, and riparian environments.
Our mission is through science to find better ways to manage our natural resources and conduct sustainable agricultural practices, for the benefit of California’s citizens. Field experiments and demonstrations conducted here since 1951 have led to more than 1,400 publications in animal science, entomology, plant ecology, public health, watershed management, and wildlife biology.
