Crooked Creek Station is going off grid!
WMRC staff recently installed 12 solar panels on the roof of Crooked Creek Station along with the necessary inverters to convert the solar energy. More panels will be installed early next spring allowing Crooked Creek Station to operate off grid.
This field station located in the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest at an elevation of 10,200’ in the White Mountains is an ideal facility in which to teach field classes, conduct research, and to hold workshops and retreats. Crooked Creek Station offers meals and accomodations for up to 45 persons. There is high speed internet access, four dry lab spaces and a classroom. The station is generally open from about June 1 to about October 31.
