About Us

Devil’s Garden Research and Education is a branch of the University of California Cooperative Extension in Modoc County. We are headquartered in rural Northern California. Our main office is located in the heart of Alturas. Our research extends throughout the county and beyond. Some of our projects include livestock grazing, water management, wild horse management, and much more. We partner with private landowners, governmental agencies, and non-governmental organizations to conduct research that serves livestock and agriculture producers, natural resource users, and other people interested in science-based solutions. 

DGRE is part of the greater UC Agriculture and Natural Resources (UCANR) branch of UC. True to the mission of the land grant universities, UCANR connects the power of UC research in agriculture, natural resources, nutrition and youth development with local communities to improve the lives of all Californians.
