With each project we address an environmental challenge in which access to physical data is a limiting factor. By leveraging the skills of the outdoor adventure community we provide unprecedented access to data at any scale in any environment.
Not your average volunteer
Our extensive network of adventure athletes are self-sufficient in diverse environments. Whether you need two or 2,000 volunteers, we are here to help you get the data you need.
We rely on the outdoor adventure community because they (1) pay close attention to detail, (2) are creative problem solvers, (3) are able to share their experiences via the rich tradition of storytelling that is at the heart the outdoor community.
Throughout the entire process, we manage our volunteers, ensuring your limited time remains yours.
We work with directly with you and your team to adapt protocols for non-scientists, ensuring you get data you trust. We will go through a complete QA/QC process before data is collected. With each project, we emphasize quality over quantity.
