The UC Hopland Research & Extension Center (HREC) may be a long name ....but it encompasses an important part of the REC's mission which is "extension" of knowledge to the community and region. Extension work, which may be called "outreach", has been an important component of HREC's staff and researchers work for many years.
With a variety of backgrounds and expertise amongst HREC's staff and researchers, HREC has the ability to provide current, educational, and interesting information to the local community through direct interaction. Here you see Bob Keiffer, HREC Superintendent, presenting the "Wildlife Conservation" topic to a certified hunter safety class. Over the last decade or so, Keiffer has provided this service to the Ukiah Rod & Gun Club, and has shared his wildlife conservation knowledge with well over a thousand people in the local community.
