Quick mends: Will El Nino be able to flush fish invaders from LA River?
A straight flush? That’s the topic environmental writer Louis Sahagun ponders in today’s LA Times, and the hypothesis being tested in this recent citizen science event: Can nonnative species survive in So Cal’s boom-or-bust water cycles?

See you on the river, Jim Burns
