Sierra Nevada Field Campus

The Sierra Nevada Field Campus provides a mountain forest setting for instruction and research in the environmental sciences and other creative disciplines. The field station is located adjacent to State Highway 49 on the North Fork of the Yuba River at an elevation of 1,675 meters. Facilities include two cabins and a dining hall on nine mostly forested acres within the Tahoe National Forest. Presently the facility supports a summer and weekend course and research program which utilizes a variety of vegetation types, landforms, and aquatic habitats near the field station. Other unique sites that occur within two hours drive include Sierra Buttes, Sierra Valley, Gold Lakes Country, Mt. Lassen, Lake Tahoe, Pyramid Lake, Eagle Lake, and Mono Lake.
