"The year round Station facilities are at an elevation of 6,380 feet in California on the east slope of the northern Sierra Nevada, approximately 20 miles North of Lake Tahoe. The roughly 8,000 acre Sagehen Creek watershed [Sagehen Experimental Forest] includes yellow pine, mixed conifer, and red fir forests, brushfields, scattered mountain meadows and fens. Deep snow is typical of the winter season, and dry, warm weather is typical of the summer period. Sagehen Creek is about 8 miles long, extending eastward from near the crest of the Sierra to Stampede Reservoir on the Little Truckee River. "
