exploring the modern world of citizen-science

filmmaker & Explorer

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.

Wild and Scenic Rivers Project

-- 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.

return to la push for coasst surveys

Our citizen science projects were turned upside down by the Covid-19 pandemic like everything else in our lives. At the start all permits in the Olympic National Park were suspended but when access resumed we still needed to find a basecamp as the La Push reservation was closed to non-residents. 

Just recently they’ve reopened after almost 18 months of being closed. We were anxious to see what had changed during our absence.
