2021 Sampling Season

Sampling takes place on the 2nd Saturday each month, March through November. 

All of our sampling sites are currently full, but we are looking for substitute samplers to help when people are sick or on vacation. If you are interested, please contact Lynn for more details. 

Lab Volunteers: Email Lynn if you are interested in volunteering in lab. The University Covid policy changes, so we are not posting our usual signup yet. 

New Lab Videos

Thanks to Zak Schultz, one of the 2020 awesome graduate students, we now have training videos for each of the lab stations.
