Sagehen Creek Field Station is a research and teaching facility of the University of California at Berkeley's Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research, the Berkeley Natural History Museums the California Biodiversity Center, & the University of California Natural Reserve System. Sagehen is also a member of the Organization of Biological Field Stations.
