You Stink Too! Tea Towel


The Salty Sirens agree, Great Salt Lake stinks! A by-product of the metabolism of microbes that live in the oxygen-depleted sediments of the lake are gases that may smell unpleasant. These salty microbes, called halophiles, form the base of a hemispherically important ecosystem that supports millions of birds. In other words, Great Salt Lake smells like science!
