Our celebration will begin with an optional field session, get involved with our work by meeting researchers and experiencing their projects hands on!

  • Drones for post-fire research – watch drones in action and understand how they can be used to help research and manage our landscapes with Shane Feirer, UCANR IGIS.
  • Oak woodlands regeneration – help to protect young oaks at HREC and learn about efforts to support our oak woodlands.
  • Wildlife – Learn why HREC is such an important location for wildlife research with Dr. Jacalyn Beck.
  • Pond restoration – and the hoped for return of the red-legged frog.
  • Sheep – Meet the HREC flock with head shepherd Alison Smith and learn about the ways in which they help research and education.
  • Fire Science for Schools – build you own burn board and tinker tree to learn about our fire programming for youth (and adults!).
  • Hike with our Blue Zones Walking Moai.

Following the field session we will gather at the Rod Shippey Hall to enjoy our own HREC lamb (vegetarian/vegan options available), alongside other farm to table produce.
