This project focused on Ugra National Park in Kaluga region of Russia, which needed help increasing its visibility to tourists and protecting its river from industrial pollution. To investigate possible contamination, the team took water samples along the river and analyzed them for two different types of paper factory byproducts. Negative results showed that alternative hypotheses and tests for other contaminants are needed. In order to increase the park's tourism the team conducted on-site research of the visitor accommodations and services. Comparing Ugra to other parks prompted the team to recommend adding more signs, indicating historic sites and creating a public outreach campaign. These measures will attract more tourists to see the park’s historic and natural treasures.
