Title The Great Basin Experiment Station
Description Much of the research at the Great Basin Station since 1955 has been in the game range restoration project sponsored by the Utah Division of Fish and Game and Intermountain Forest and Range Experiment Station. The Station has not only been instrumental in providing scientific studies in the nation but many visitors from foreign countries have visited the Station and spent time there learning about the area and the research that has been done. They have come from Iran, Iraq, Israel, Rhodesia, Spain, Italy, Russia and other foreign countries. Some were very willing to work. Others expected the work to be done for them. One incident was related by Mr. Plummer during his work with a visitor. After a short time in the hot sun, the visitor disappeared. When Mr. Plummer found him, he was sitting under a tree in the shade and on being approached said, "You take the measurements and I'll sit here and record them." In addition to the visitors from other countries, officials from Washington, D.C., the Ogden office and others came for Field Days when they were taken on tours to see the various projects being carried out. A summer school workshop was held for two years for the Granite School District, and training sessions were also held for Range Management Personnel. Astrid Larsen, who spent several summers cooking for the various groups, remembers a group from Christs Church, New Zealand, who spent some time at the Station. Other schools, Service clubs and 4 H groups were also welcomed at the Station where they gained first-hand information of the work involved at the Experiment range. Cooperative projects were engaged in vith the Utah Division of Wild Life, the Bureau of Sport Fisheries and Wild Life, the Agriculture Research Service and the USU Agriculture Sxperiment Station. College courses in Range Management have developed in later years as a result of the scientific studies. Research still continues at the Experiment Station with most of the work in Ephraim canyon now being done in shrub genetics to improve the strain of shrub forage for the Rocky Mountain Mule Deer. The Utah Division of Natural Resources is doing this in collaboration with 77
