  1. Very interested in Prof Kolster’s river project as I have been involved for 4 years with a small non-profit called The Center for Natural Capital. One of our flagship projects is called StreamSweepers ( http://www.streamsweepers.org ) in which we have assessed, sampled, and cleaned more than 100 miles of 2 Virginia rivers. See website above. Please pass our information on to Prof Kolster. Would love to chat about both projects if he is interested.
