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.
