UC Merced / SCICON Field Station

The long-imagined UC Merced/SCICON Field Station is being developed as a partnership between the university and the Tulare County Office of Educationís acclaimed outdoor education program as a research site for UC scientists to study the unique ecological issues of the Central Valley. The partnership plans to work with other land management agencies, including the National Park Service and neighboring Sequoia-Kings Canyon National Park. In addition, the field station will engage students and educators at the primary, secondary, and postsecondary levels in research and career development.
