Special IB Seminar

 John Bailey, Hopland Research and Extension Center, UC

 Department of Integrative Biology

The UC Hopland Research and Extension Center (HREC) is a 5,358 acre facility located roughly two hours north of the UC Berkeley campus, open to use by all UC faculty and dedicated to providing a location for research work and educational offerings. The extensive landscape offers tremendous biodiversity in a variety of microclimates and elevations. Archaeological sites, perennial waterbodies, and riparian areas further diversify the potential for study. Well-developed facilities, including a conference center, a recently renovated lab, a variety of accommodations, and multiple research oriented structures are complemented by a skilled staff who can help conduct fieldwork, construct research equipment, and coordinate educational activities. In contrast to the Natural Reserves, the HREC allows for extensive manipulation of the landscape to suit your research and educational needs.
HREC Director John Bailey will give a seminar discussing the Center, including an overview of research projects both historical and currently underway, as well as a tour of what potential HREC could have for hosting your research or educational programs or retreats. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session where you can learn more about your particular interests.
