Document Description
Sagehen Creek Field Station, managed by the University of California, Berkeley, is located within the 9,000-acre Sagehen Experimental Forest 20 miles north of Truckee. The Field Station contains 22 buildings, some which are in need of repair and upgrades to provide year-round service to researchers, as well as to meet current standards of public health and safety. While the facilities to be renovated are modern, they have been deemed to be well beyond their functional life-cycle and do not currently contribute to a safe and accessible educational environment. The project includes six discreet renovation tasks described in Attachment A. A location map of the Field Station is included as Attachment B.
