SNRI Sequoia Field Station: Wolverton
The SNRI Sequoia Field Station in Wolverton is at an elevation of 2,100 meters (7,200 feet), at the transition from mixed-conifer to red-fir forest. It is about 1 mile off of the Generals Highway and is adjacent to Giant Forest, which is home to largest grove of Giant Sequoias in the Sierra Nevada.
Located at the site of the historic Wolverton Ski Area, the station is being developed in partnership with Sequoia National Park and the Delaware North Corporation. The station serves as a research facility for the well-instrumented 10-square-kilometer Wolverton basin and the long-term studies conducted at Emerald Lake and the Upper Marble Fork of the Kaweah River.
The SNRI facilities at Wolverton consist of an extensive network of environmental sensors and survey sites and a large work space with a small adjacent cabin for housing researchers. For larger groups, summer camping is available nearby. The facilities are accessible year round and have Internet, phone and fax. Future plans include expanding and improving the research and lodging capabilities and providing real-time telemetered environmental data.
