our mission

To promote education and conservation through the documentation and participation of leading citizen-science projects. 

We continue to participate in a variety of science projects providing valuable data to organizations such as NOAA, COASST, and Sea Grant. We’ve trapped for the invasive European Green Grab, sampled for microplastics in both the marine and freshwater environments, conducted debris surveys, collected data on beached coastal birds, and collected data on our Wild and Scenic Rivers.

Wild and Scenic Rivers

A new season of fieldwork has commenced. We’re excited to be working with Adventure Scientist on this project for a third season. This wet, rainy weekend finds us back in Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest and the  Suiattle River to measure the health of this iconic river.

Be sure to watch our Twitter account for reports from the field.

Support

Our mission is a labor of love, but it does come with overhead. If you’d like to support our efforts we’d certainly appreciate it. Currently, we’re actively participating in the following field research:

  • COASST Beached Bird Surveys
  • Wild and Scenic River Project

Thank you.

An advantage to our volunteering is that we’re often well off the beaten track presented with spectacular scenery. Here you can find our more dramatic photos taken in the field.

Here you’ll find both news related to conservation and citizen science, but also many behind-the-scenes video clips and photos. It’s also a good place for tips on what we’re up to between articles.

Dosewallips State Park Suffers Major Upheaval

It’s been some time since we visited Dosewallips State Park, located just south of Brinnon on Hood Canal. Not only is this campsite one of our favorites, but it offers excellent access to both the Olympic National Park and the Olympic National Forest.

The campsite has camping on both sides of Highway 101…or at least it did. The east side campsites have consistently been closed for the winter season. We walked over to that side on our first night to enjoy the view. Our jaws just dropped when we saw what was left of that half of the campgrounds.
