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.

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.

  • Cape Disappointment Lighthouse at the mouth of the Columbia River.

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.

a night at dusty lake

This was something Steve and Theresa had wanted to do ever since they had topped the ridge from Ancient Lakes and looked down toward Dusty Lakes. They invited long-time friend Brad to join them and the trio set out on their Rad Bikes from the lower trailhead.

Despite a few bumps and bruises on the trail, chilly temperatures at night, and being chased across the desert by a thunderstorm they had a great time.
