Holden Village provides the National Weather Service and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration daily readings from our weather station, located next to the Holden School. Weather data is gathered each morning by volunteers and transmitted electronically to the National Weather Service office in Spokane, Washington. This data is also posted in the dining hall, updated on the Holden Web site, and retained for Village records. What is the Coop Program?
