Albion Field Station


Albion Field Station Temporary Closure Due to COVID-19

The Albion Field Station might just be Northern California's best-kept secret. Quietly nestled near the Pacific Ocean and surrounded by forested hills, the Albion Field Station lies in the heart of the majestic Mendocino coast. Located in the valley of an old lumber camp, it has welcomed students and visitors with its rustic charm since 1947.

The Albion Field Station is owned and operated by Pacific Union College and offers an ideal base from which to explore and learn. Tide pools and estuaries open up windows into the natural world that most people only read about. It's not uncommon to discover a timid doe with her fawns feeding nearby or to spot varieties of birds competing for food. The Center offers extraordinary opportunities for students, families, and groups to explore and learn. The quaint facilities provide a relaxed, comfortable and affordable environment for enjoying the beautiful Mendocino coast.
