Help citizen scientists make a difference.

 Community members around Lake Tahoe have been helping the Desert Research Institute identify point-sources of microplastics entering the Lake.  One of those point sources are stormwater drainages.

Where are microplastics in Lake Tahoe coming from?

As we learn more about where the microplastics are entering the Lake, we can work towards preventing more pollution.

Community monitoring for community stewardship. 

Citizen science means that everyone can contribute to science and solutions. As more people understand the sources of the problem, we can all be part of the solution.
