"Each time we choose a fork in the river or a fork in the road, it affects where we end up, determining the path of our future. In that same way, everything we put into our water will eventually affect what is downstream. We must choose to take care of our water in the same way we choose to take care of our future, aware of what may be many generations downstream." - Kt Miller
During a ski trip in the Julian Alps, Kt Miller contributes valuable samples to the ASC Microplastics Project.

Do you love rivers, lakes and oceans? WE NEED YOU.
We’re mobilizing our army of adventurers as we expand the #ASCMicroplastics Project to freshwater. Together we can bring an invisible threat into plain sight, stopping it at the source. Join the ranks: www.adventurescience.org/microplastics

Photographer Joe Klementovich was recently in Florida Bay & the Keys, fly fishing and collecting water samples for ASC Microplastics. 

"I like to think the little things we do can add up to bigger changes, no matter how massive the challenge... Once it warms up here in New England I’ll be throwing a couple bottles in with my fly fishing gear, continue to do my bit and hope that we can make some big changes."

"Just as Iceland faded from view, the crew cut their motors and hoisted the sails of the La Louise. It was nearly 6 p.m., and dusk was approaching.... Time to collect water samples."

By Emily Stifler Wolfe, Adventurers & Scientists for Conservation Just as Iceland faded from view, the crew cut their motors and hoisted the sails of the La Louise. It was nearly 6 p.m., and dusk was approaching. The five women of the Shifting Ice and Changing Tides expedition set sail from Iceland on March 30, bound for the southwest coast of Greenland, where they planned to ski first descents and visually document glacial recession...

Thomas Neilsen and Scott Veirs launched today from Port Townshend, WA, on a rowdy 1,200km voyage in the Race To Alaska. The first of the human- and wind-powered crafts to reach Ketchikan, AK, wins $10k.

Did you know that ASC recently helped discover a new genus of diatom? Craig Wieland, who took this photo while sampling mountain lakes in the Oregon Cascades, was among the team of ASC hikers and climbers collecting key data for this research.
Citizen science helps discover new species of diatoms in high mountain lakes in Pacific Northwest.

Bringing the Adventure and Science Communities Together
Introduction

Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation was founded in January of 2011 with the understanding that many people traveling in the outdoors genuinely want to do more for the places they visit but often struggle with how to help. ASC exists to bridge this gap by pairing adventure athletes already traveling to some of the earth's most difficult­-to-­reach places with the scientists who need information from these areas. ASC also has the goal of creating unique and innovative learning experiences about science while also saving the scientific and conservation communities millions of dollars in data collection costs.
