The Albion Biological Field Station is a research and education facility near the Pacific coast of Mendocino County, California that is operated by Pacific Union College, a private liberal arts college affiliated with the Adventist Church and located in the Napa Valley.[1][2]


The Albion Field Station is located in Albion, California, on the south bank of the Albion River, in a former lumber camp.[1] It was established in 1947, and provides college courses in biology as well as shorter courses for elementary and high school students and seniors.[2] It also provides boating facilities, which were significantly renovated beginning in 2007.[2][3]

In 2007, the net cost to the college of operating the station was $100,000.[4]
