Welcome

About the Hopland Research and Extension Center

 

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.

Fire Recovery Resources

As our County and those surrounding begin to recover from recent wildfires these resources may be of use:

Center for Fire Research and Outreach

Fire Recovery in California's Oak Woodlands

Grassland Restoration - some of this information may be more suitable for smaller areas without grazing.

USDA Assistance for Fire Affected Ag. producers in Lake and Mendocino 

The Mendocino Local Assistance Center is now open. This is a multi-agency support center providing assistance to residents affected by the Redwood fire. 

Here at HREC we are working to support recovery by:

  • Developing workshops with information to support agricultural and wildland regeneration efforts.
  • Developing a bank of acorns to assist with post fire oak regeneration efforts.
  • Supporting fundraising efforts for fire recovery.

If you have questions or suggestions regarding these efforts please contact Hannah Bird at hbird@ucanr.edu or call (707) 744 1424 ext 105.
