Help ID snow algae
Desert Research Institute is seeking volunteers to look for snow algae as part of the Living Snow Project. The project, a partnership with Western Washington University, aims to increase the organization’s understanding of where snow algae blooms naturally and the way that algae blooms can affect other environmental factors.
Researchers and community members who come across snow algae can record visual observations using the Living Snow Project app or collect samples of snow algae using a provided kit. Participants are encouraged to take pictures and share them with the Living Snow Project on Instagram (@living_snow_project) or Twitter (@LivingSnowProj). | wp.wwu.edu
