SNRS Office

The SNRS office in Wawona is the hub of the field station, providing desk, research and teaching space. Come on in and say hi to the staff when you're here!

Youth Programs

Using Yosemite as a classroom, the station works with several exciting youth programs to get students involved with science and the natural world.

Research at SNRS- Yosemite

UCSD's Celia Symons used cattle tanks with and without fish to study how temperature mediates the effect of predators on aquatic food webs.

Partnerships with NPS

Biological science technician Thomas Reyes and Park hydrologist Jim Roche mentored REU students in 2015.


Located within Yosemite and Sequoia Kings Canyon National Parks, the Sierra Nevada Research Stations offer unparalleled access and support for research and teaching inside the two parks. We are dedicated to facilitating collaboration between sciences, arts and the humanities, education and natural resource management.

Together, the SNRS facilities in the National Parks make up one of two UC Merced reserves run by the UC Natural Reserve System, and are operated in partnership with Yosemite National Park, Sequoia Kings Canyon National Park and the U.S. Geological Survey
