Water Chest

Macroinvertebrates (water insects visible to the naked eye) require high levels of dissolved oxygen and are highly sensitive to water pollution, their presence (or lack of) is a good indicator of water quality.

Weather Tools

Have you ever wondered what causes wind and how wind speed is measured? Uinta County is a great place to learn about wind!

Anemometers are devices used to measure wind. We have information on wind and a cup anemometer that can be used for hands on learning about how wind is measured. We also have a digital anemometer for an accurate reading of the wind speed on our windy Wyoming days.
