The Salmon Brook Ecology center now has its own weather station!  The weather station was made possible through a GEF grant. The web-based station will expand the use of the Ecology Center into all classrooms throughout the district, providing real-time data for use in a variety of curriculums including science, broadcast, and world language.    

The station includes: Thermometers, barometers, anemometers, hygrometers, and wind vanes.  The data collected will support many areas of curriculum, including science, morning broadcasts, and world language.  It will also expand the use of the ecology center as the data will be available to all of the schools in the district via the internet and will be on-going throughout the entire year.
