Emriver model outreach in Alaska.

The  Bureau of Land Management's Glen Allen, Alaska field office has been using our Em2 model for outreach.  Here are a few photos.

The young man teaching is Luke Ringger, a high school student who has a gift for working with younger kids, who look up to him because he's not "old."

These made my very happy.  Thanks to Marnie Graham, Matthew Vos, and others at BLM for capturing/sending them.

The last photo shows Tim Sundlov (hand on bucket), who arranged to buy the Em2, in my favorite setting for our models--next to a river, running on a small battery.  As designed.

We're working hard in this economy to pursue our river model labor of love, and news like this keeps us going.

oh man, if I am ever in your part of the world can I come visit and look at your stream tables? I would have loved to have been able to do that as a kid - though I was lucky to have a yard with buckets and mud, so it wasn't so bad.
