Sierra Foothill REC calls for proposals
Proposals are due to SFREC by April 15, 2016. Proposals may be submitted into the REC Manage System via the SFREC website at http://sfrec.ucanr.edu.
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 include 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 the center also maintains GIS databases that are available to researchers. Facilities include a laboratory for preparation of wet and dry samples, meeting rooms and a 16-bed dormitory.
