Utah Lake Field Station
Biological field stations provide living libraries and outdoor laboratories for students, researchers, and the general public interested in the environment.
We are committed to advancing our understanding of the Earth by supporting research, teaching, and public education.
Research stations provide an invaluable service to local communities and the country by providing unbiased scientific information and facilities to help governmental and other stakeholders tackle critical environmental issues. Field station staff and researchers play a critical role in ensuring that environmental considerations are factored into local and regional planning and development decisions.
The Clean Up
The shoreline around the lake has collected large amounts of garbage over the years. Much of the garbage has become stuck and entangled in the surrounding plant and animal life, making it hard for animals and plants to thrive. Many fish and birds have entangled themselves in the garbage that has blown into their habitats. Cleaning up the garbage and debris around the lake, the Hutchings Museum Institute volunteers improve the habitat for wildlife and help decrease the number of fatalities with the local animals.
