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. We are stewards of more than 5,300 acres of oak woodland, grassland, chaparral, and riparian environments.
Our mission is to maintain and enhance ecosystem integrity through applied research, adaptive management, and educational activities, while also supporting working landscapes. Field experiments and demonstrations conducted here since 1951 have led to more than 2,000 publications in animal science, entomology, plant ecology, public health, watershed management, and wildlife biology.
We at the Hopland Research and Extension Center, first and foremost acknowledge with honor the Shóqowa and Hopland People on whose traditional, ancestral, and unceded lands we work, educate and learn, and whose historical and spiritual relationship with these lands continues to this day and beyond.
For more information on the Indigenous and colonial history of this land please see this Land History Story Map.
