In this interactive workshop, we will explore effective communication techniques for advancing lake and stream stewardship and conservation. We will look at both external communication (how we talk about water resources and our work with outside audiences) and internal communication (how organizations share and discuss goals and values internally). You will leave with ideas, tools, and inspiration on how to improve communication for your organization. We will be joined by two experts in organizational success for natural resource organizations: Dr. Michael Everett, faculty member in the Department of Community Sustainability at Michigan State University, and Jenn Wright, Executive Director of the Grass River Natural Area in Bellaire, Michigan.
This workshop is presented by the Michigan Lake and Stream Leaders Institute, a leadership development program benefiting Michigan’s lakes, streams, and watersheds. The Michigan Lake and Stream Leaders Institute is a cooperative effort of Michigan State University Extension, the MSU Department of Fisheries and Wildlife, the Michigan Lakes and Streams Association, and the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy.
