The Sierra Foothill Research and Extension Center fosters and supports research, education and outreach programs focused on key agricultural and natural resource themes relevant to the Sierra foothills. We develop programs that address these critical needs with University of California academics as well as local and regional partners. On this site you will find information on how to propose and develop programs at the Center, an overview of current and previous programs, as well as specific information about the Center.
