UC Point Reyes Field Station
The UC Point Reyes Field Station is located within the boundaries of Point Reyes National Seashore in the historic Hagmaier Ranch house about six miles south of Olema, California. The field station is uniquely situated for research on well over 100,000 acres of remarkably diverse biological, cultural, and historic resources within the Point Reyes National Seashore as well as the large number of open space lands in the surrounding area, such as Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Mt. Tamalpais and Samuel P. Taylor State Parks, Marin Municipal Water District, Audubon Canyon Ranch properties, several Marin County Open Space areas, and Muir Woods National Monument.
The refurbished 1915 ranch house provides researchers with overnight camping accommodations adjacent to the ranch house (eventually dormitory style beds), a full kitchen, meeting rooms, wi-fi, and work areas. The outdoor camping area with bathroom and shower access in the house is suitable for large classes and research groups. The facilities at the Point Reyes Field Station provide an ideal setting for class visits, field research projects, retreats, and collaborative work.
Individual researchers and artists, groups, and classes can submit an Application and/or a Reservation to use the Point Reyes Field Station via the UC Natural Reserve System’s Reserve Application Management System (RAMS).
