Part III of the Security and Sustainability Forum”s Water Resources Webinar Series

Washington, DC (August 25, 2010) – This webinar primarily targeted  water resource professionals, educators, and nature-based tourism service providers.

An expert panel of outreach and education practitioners described 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.

Observations were offered based on tested programs and activities exemplifying both the successes and failures the panel has encountered. Panelists discussed collaborative mechanisms to leverage resources, and techniques for reaching larger audiences and communities regarding our nation’s water resource challenges.
