Your Gift at Work

Your support makes a difference. Here’s a glimpse into the kind of work we can do using equipment that our generous supporters help fund.

Research associate Laura Borecki is using a micro-balance, a scale designed to weigh material as light as a third of a milligram — for example, fish and macro-invertebrate tissue samples. She will then analyze those samples for carbon, nitrogen, and hydrogen isotopes, which will help us understand the food web in the stream.
