Some of my work has been featured on CNN, Outside TV and, National Geographic.
Follow me on my journey to document the modern world of citizen-science and its contribution to conservation. I’ve participated in field work from remote islands off the coast of Alaska to the jungles of Costa Rica. I invited you to share my passions.
The National Wild and Scenic Rivers System was created by Congress in 1968 (Public Law 90- 542; 16 U.S.C. 1271 et seq.) to preserve certain rivers with outstanding natural, cultural, and recreational values in a free-flowing condition for the enjoyment of present and future generations.
-- June 2021 --
Wild and Scenic Rivers are designated because of the remarkable values they possess. However, many lack data about their water quality. The data we collect will be used by state and federal agencies to determine what is needed to restore and maintain the chemical, physical, and biological integrity of these rivers. Your work will help our Wild and Scenic rivers meet standards of the Clean Water Act.
We are collecting data on these rivers to gain a better understanding of their water quality and aid managing agencies that protect these outstanding rivers.

During our recent visit to Ancient Lakes we also had time to make a stop over at the Ginkgo Petrified Forest State Park Interpretive Center. I was amazed at the collection on display; more than 30 varieties of petrified wood, including a display of rare ginkgo petrified wood.
Also on display, just outside the main entrance are Native American petroglyphs, cut from nearby basalt cliffs before they were inundated by the waters rising behind Wanapum Dam, which was completed in 1963.
Follow the team’s latest news and social feeds here. You’ll also find links to articles on the latest developments regarding citizen-science and the conservation of our oceans.
We also use this feed for updates from the field as we pursue our own science and the occasional short video clip.
And please, feel free to join in the conversation. We’d love to hear what you’re up to as well.
Just want to thank everyone for all the messages and encouragement this last year. And we really appreciate your donations as well! Our overhead is low, but we do appreciate your generosity in helping with the expenses.
