Welcome to the Bernard Field Station!

The Robert J. Bernard Biological Field Station, an academic resource of The Claremont Colleges Services is located on approximately 86 acres within the Claremont Colleges Campus in Claremont, CA. The habitat is primarily California sage scrub with live oak forest and grassland. In addition, an artificial lake with surrounding riparian woodland and several created vernal pools add to habitat diversity.


The Bernard Field Station’s mission is to increase understanding and awareness of southern California’s ecosystems through education and research.
