Ways You Can Get Involved

Community Scientists

Our program depends on volunteer community scientists to collect and analyze data. We invite community feedback to help shape the goals of the project.

Local Organizations

We want to collaborate with groups who are interested in implementing an eDNA biodiversity monitoring program for the LA River.


We want to work with educators in the Los Angeles region who are interested in bringing community science, biodiversity monitoring, and cutting-edge eDNA research into their classrooms.


We are interested in working with a variety of artists (designers, writers, painters, musicians, digital artists, etc.) who want to explore ways to interpret and communicate biodiversity information and their perspectives of the river.
