About (old version)

The Yosemite Field Station is located in Wawona, a historic village comprising private and park residences just inside the park's south entrance. It's nestled in an open, old-growth pine forest along the South Fork of the Merced River, only five miles from Mariposa Grove. It is ideally situated to support field research projects in Yosemite and the adjacent Sierra National Forest, class field trips, workshops, writing retreats, small conferences and interdisciplinary collaborations.  

The Yosemite Field Station has offices, classrooms and research space located in a refurbished historic house and stable built in 1934. Guest cabins (refurbished vacation homes) are available for overnight stays for up to 50 people. Each cabin has a fully equipped kitchen, internet, and bunks. All you have to bring is food, linens, and personal items! 

The Sequoia Kings Canyon Field Station sits in Wolverton, in the heart of Sequoia National Park. It is about a mile off the Generals Highway and is adjacent to the Giant Forest, home to the largest grove of giant sequoias in the Sierra Nevada. The station serves as a research facility for some of the UC Merced Southern Sierra Critical Zone Observatory field sites in the Wolverton Basin, Emerald Lake and the Upper Marble Fork of the Kaweah River. 

The Sequoia Kings Canyon Field Station has a one-room cabin that can accommodate three people and a 25-person research or classroom space available for year-round use. There is Internet and phone access. The cabin has a fully equipped kitchen with a fridge and stove, and summer camping is available nearby for larger groups.
