Eel River Recovery Project

The Eel River Recovery Project (ERRP) is a volunteer organization that began in 2011 in the wake of several dog deaths due to toxic algae in the river. The organization focuses on monitoring the water quality and ecology of the river with an emphasis on algae and salmon. I am leading the Algae Monitoring Team to train citizen scientists to monitor the occurrance of toxic algae in the Eel River watershed.

US Forest Service: More Kids in the Woods

I am a scientific advisor on a US Forest Service More Kids in the Woods grant that citizens of Eel River Watershed received in 2013. The program is titled the Junior Watershed Science Training Program and gets youths more aquainted with aquatic ecosystems. I've helped develop the scientific curriculum for the program, and teach field lessons on freshwater ecology to K-12 students. We spend several hours on the river identiying organisms and learning about the processes that shape aquatic landscapes.
