telling a story

September 22, 2011 from 12:00pm to 1:00pm EST:

As part of the Indiana Watershed Leadership Academy, each participant completes a project in groups of 2 or 3 people that contributes to watershed management in Indiana. This webinar highlights three projects that were developed during the 2011 Academy.



Meet the Presenters:

Caitlin Grady, Purdue University

How to Make a Good Brochure:
Along with Elizabeth Tompkins and Maria Schaefer, we investigated the "Water Words the Work" marketing strategies for developing material for the general public. We asked members of the public to review existing brochures and answer survey questions to determine their effectiveness.

Ginger Korinek, Lost River Watershed Coordinator
Laura Fribley, IN State Department of Agriculture

Lost River Eco-Tour:
Along with Howard Mills, we created an Eco-Tour of the Lost River watershed that highlights ecological benefits of different areas within the system. We also included a basic steps guide for other groups wanting to develop similar Eco-tours within their own watershed.

Tips & Tricks for Engaging Public Meeting Participants:
Along with Steve Carter, we interviewed public meeting facilitators and attendees as well as doing some research in order to compile a quick list for improving success in engaging public meeting participants in positive discussions. We also identified things that can be implemented to help make people feel comfortable to speak up.
