Reaching the Right People

This is workshop will be held at the Sustaining Colorado Watersheds Conference as one of the three pre-conference workshops. 

Every year CFWE host a workshop prior to the Sustaining Colorado's Watersheds Conference designed  for our Water Educator Network members and other outreach professionals who are engaged in water education in Colorado. As an educator, often one of our biggest challenges is reaching our targeted audiences, and even more challenging, once we have reached them, how do we manage those relationships to reach our goals? Our workshop this year was created with those challenges in mind. Participants of this workshop will engage in a dialogue and receive training on how to best design, plan and reach target audiences with water-focused messages and information.

It includes a close examination of the tradeoffs, hurdles, and opportunities for success. Learn more and register here.
