Utah Lake Field Station
What is a Field Station?
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 shoreline around the lake has collected large amounts of garbage. 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.
Monarchs face a new challenge today as milkweed is rapidly decreasing from new developments and the popular use of herbicides in croplands.
Monarch Waystations provide milkweed (the only plant monarchs will lay eggs on) and other native pollinating wildflowers.
Want to start a Monarch Waystation on your business or private property?
We can guide you through the process and provide seeds at educational material at a minimal cost.
Planting native, drought-tolerant wildflowers, is an easy way to help pollinators, reduce water use and beautify any landscape.
Cities, businesses, and homeowners can contribute to the total amount of pollinating flowers we have, and continue to lose to development.
