Sagehen Creek Field Station & the Sagehen Experimental Forest are research and teaching facilities of the University of California at Berkeley's Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research, the Berkeley Natural History Museums & the U.C. Natural Reserve System. We are also a member of the Organization of Biological Field Stations. Learn more about Sagehen here.
