Date: May 27, 2020
Time: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join us for another Clean Water Webinar provided by Save Our Streams and the Izaak Walton League of America!
You’ve gathered your equipment, headed into the field, and collected your data. Now, you are ready to share your findings and educate your local community. But how can you ensure that your story is shared in a compelling and easy-to-understand way? The Integration and Application Network has developed effective techniques and tools that best communicate science and restoration information to a broad audience. This talk will present some of the lessons learned from almost twenty years of synthesizing scientific data into engaging information. Participants will learn about effective PowerPoint presentations, data visualizations, and stakeholder workshops. This is an interactive webinar where participants will participate in activities during the webinar.
Caroline Donovan, Program Manager for the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Sciences – Integration and Application Network (UMCES-IAN), oversees project management, science communication, and data analysis.
