Proposals are due at SFREC by March 2, 2015. The center expects to award approximately 2,700 hours of labor to assist new and continuing research projects. Proposals may be submitted into the REC Manage System via the SFREC website at http://sfrec.ucanr.edu beginning Jan. 21.
SFREC encourages and is able to support research in an array of areas including beef cattle health and production, grassland and oak woodland ecology, water quality, hydrology, invasive species management, range management and wildlife ecology, among others. Resources available to researchers at the Center includes over 5,000 acres of northern Sierra foothill oak woodland–annual grass rangeland as well as irrigated pastures, riparian areas and access to the Yuba River. Several weather stations are established at SFREC and SFREC also maintains GIS databases available to researchers. Facilities include a laboratory for preparation of wet and dry samples, meeting rooms, and a 16-bed dormitory.
