A brand new high-tech weather observation station has been located to the Logan Library and the unveiling of this Utah State University-sponsored project will be held this Thursday afternoon at 2 p.m. on the library plaza. Library director Karen Clark was a guest on KVNU’s For the People program on Tuesday and told us how this project got started.
“We’re really excited about it. We have been working with Bruce Bugbee up at USU and it started with (former) Mayor (Craig) Petersen actually last winter to put a weather station here on the plaza at the city hall complex. And it’s all in, we’re just going to do the final unveiling on Thursday at 2 o’clock,” she said.
To introduce this environmental observatory, Clark will be on-hand along with Logan Mayor Holly Daines and also representatives from USU, Apogee Instruments and Campbell Scientific. The event is free and geared to families and the library’s programs for youth.
“We are really excited. Our children’s division does activities on Thursday afternoons throughout the summer and we’re starting this one with the weather vane. They’ll be making weather vanes as well as other things. We’re going to have some kind of science experiment going on, building a tornado in a jar or something.”
There will also be information booths and refreshments.
