May Spotlight Webinar 

For the May Spotlight webinar, hosted by Jim Farrar of EIPD, Karey Windbiel-Rojas shared ideas on how we can all help protect our rivers and waterways through more careful management of urban pest management. The Spotlight videos offer short, sharp overviews of impact stories from across the state. Watch her presentation at Educating urban audiences to protect water quality (video). 

Growing reach and impact by enhancing our virtual skills

Driven (in part) by the COVID-19 need, the SIs continue to support the building of our organization's skills to deliver virtually through both "how-to" videos and engaging webinars. 

The interest in both topics was high as demonstrated by over 150 people participating in each of the series!
