EPA's Watershed Academy is pleased to sponsor its 60th free Webcast Seminar on "Conducting Effective Stormwater Outreach"
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Watershed Academy is pleased to sponsor its 60th free Webcast Seminar on Thursday, October 27, 2011 "Conducting Effective Stormwater Outreach."
This webinar will help state and local agencies, municipalities, watershed groups and others design effective outreach initiatives. It will showcase EPA's Nonpoint Source (NPS) Outreach Toolbox, which offers a variety of stormwater TV, radio and print ads, and other tools. Featured products cover: general stormwater, lawn and garden care, pet care, septic system care, motor vehicle care, and household chemicals. The webinar will also feature Think Blue Maine. This successful awareness and behavior change outreach effort by the Think Blue Maine partnership included the development and airing of a 30-second Public Service Announcement (Devil Ducks) and the creation of posters, door hangers and other products. Recent survey results show a marked increase in public understanding and a willingness to take actions to protect water quality.
The presentation will be posted in advance at http://epa.gov/watershedwebcasts. Webcast participants are eligible to receive a certificate for their attendance.
