Phase One of Sampling is a Wrap!
Thanks to our river partners, we've collected 120 sediment samples and 48 water samples across our 12 study sites! Each site looked very different from the next, and the eDNA results should showcase these differences. Sites like Glendale (pictured above) have a surprising amount of algae growing on top of the concrete channel; our partners at LA Sanitation even noted small footprints nearby. We're taking a short break from sampling while the seasons change, and then we're back at it!
