Field Station Supporters

The Tulare County Office of Education and the University of California, Merced thank the following individuals and organizations that have generously supported the creation of the UC Merced/SCICON Field Station and its ongoing programming for researchers and students.

The partners also wish to thank Dr. Donna FitzRoy Hardy for her generous donation of equity and property at the site of the new UC Merced/SCICON Field Station. Her passion for animal and environmental research in the Central Valley has made an immeasurable impact on this project. Future research on condor habitats will continue at the site, known as Condors' Hope, through a partnership with The Peregrine Fund.
