An expert panel of practitioners describes an inter-organizational, community-based effort to raise water resource awareness and watershed literacy across student and adult populations with program offerings for middle school students, leadership training for high school students, undergraduate and graduate internships and work experiences, and public water-themed special events that educate and entertain.
Panelists discuss collaborative mechanisms to leverage resources, and techniques for reaching larger audiences and communities regarding our nation’s water resource challenges, and share lessons learned in their successes and failures.
