Download the free UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center new Citizen Science Tahoe mobile app at CitizenScienceTahoe.org and help lake researchers by taking a few minutes to enter what you see at the beach, from algae to wildlife. Each observation automatically records the user’s location and the date and time.
Users can also add photos and their own comments, and they earn points for every observation made.
Science needs both sides of the story, so users are encouraged to report on what is good at the beach as well as anything that indicates problems, such as algae, shells, or litter.
