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.


UC Merced operates two field stations in Yosemite and Sequoia-Kings Canyon National Parks in partnership with Yosemite National Park and Sequoia-Kings Canyon National Parks. The stations offer unparalleled access and support for research and teaching in the parks and surrounding areas. We are dedicated to facilitating collaboration between sciences, arts and the humanities, education, and natural resource management. The Yosemite Field Station and UC Merced's Vernal Pool Grassland Reserve are two of the 41 reserves in the UC Natural Reserve System.
