The UC Point Reyes Field Station is located within the boundaries of Point Reyes National Seashore in the historic Hagmaier Ranch house about six miles south of Olema, California. In partnership with the National Park Service, the field station is uniquely situated for research on well over 100,000 acres of remarkably diverse biological, cultural, and historic resources within Point Reyes National Seashore as well as the large number of open space lands in the surrounding area, such as Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Mt. Tamalpais and Samuel P. Taylor State Parks, Marin Municipal Water District, Audubon Canyon Ranch properties, several Marin County Parks and Open Space areas, and Muir Woods National Monument.

The facilities at the Point Reyes Field Station provide an ideal setting for class visits, field research projects, staff retreats, meetings, and collaborative work. The refurbished 1915 ranch house provides field station day and overnight users with a full kitchen, meeting room with folding tables and chairs, wi-fi internet access, and work areas. Overnight accommodations include bunk beds in two bedrooms downstairs, a double bed in a private room upstairs, and an outdoor camping area immediately south of the Hagmaier Ranch house, which is suitable for individuals, small groups, and large field classes.
