Includes 3k each for Esther and Shannon, 1k for Roger and even a little something for RA (and Masoud?), but especially overhead (for AVS and rent) and some recompense for participants (probably to accrue hourly, for beach 'shoreline litter surveys' and 'microbial water quality' work, on Lac Leman and Lac de Bienne to start)!
