Sandpoint Research Center to Close
SANDPOINT — The University of Idaho’s Research and Extension Center here will be mothballed, according to staffers.
Dr. Dan Barney, known for his huckleberry research at the facility on Boyer Avenue, said he was told that the station where he has spent 22 years, will be shuttered as of June 30 in the face of university budget shortfalls.
“I was notified last Friday,” he said. “Our job here is to completely decommission the station and get it into some type of long-term storage situation.”
