Impact Essay
"Go with the Flow" is our quarterly calendar and volunteer spotlight publication. It has become a tool that allows visitors to get a snapshot of all programs we offer to the public. The public can view an entire seasonal calendar of events by opening up to the centerfold. The publication also advocates for environmental stewardship by not only listing opportunities for the public to get involved (i.e. planting events) but by highlighting our volunteer program and a volunteer for that quarter. In each issue, there is short and timely paragraph written by the Reserve Manager. This allows the public to get a feel for what is happening from above and hopefully get a feeling for what resource managers go through. We also promote quick and helpful hints on conserving resources i.e. "Eight Reasons to Compost", etc. We love our new publication and feel it a strong and useful tool for disseminating information and sparking interest in what we do. We publish the document in both a hard copy for our brochure racks and outreach events as well and a digital version for our email list and website. We love it!
