The California course, now in its 19th successful year, is held at Sagehen Creek Field Station, 15 mi north of Lake Tahoe, and 45 minutes from the Reno airport. The station combines a beautiful natural setting with excellent research and teaching facilities, free wireless internet, and excellent meals.  For those flying to Reno we will offer a pickup from the airport at 6pm on Sun, August 17.  We can drop you off at the airport at 5:15pm on Fri, August 22.

Sagehen Creek is steps away from the teaching facilities, and provides an excellent on-site laboratory to illustrate many of the concepts taught in the course. Participants can stay on-site or commute from hotels in Truckee (15 minutes).
