George M. Valente

Student Bio

At CSU Chico, George worked under Dr. Monohan of The Sierra Fund to evaluate methylmercury concentrations in trout in the Yuba and Bear River watersheds. Following graduation, George interned with The Sierra Fund to collect fish tissue samples to test for mercury with the goal of filling data gaps so that site specific fish consumption advisories could be developed by the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA).
