Getting In Step A Guide For Conducting Watershed Outreach Campaigns

Getting In Step Outreach Guide

Getting in Step: A Guide for Conducting Watershed Outreach Campaigns [PDF, 136 pp, 3270 KB] explains the steps needed to develop and implement an effective watershed outreach campaign and includes a set of practical worksheets to help you get on your way. If you're a watershed practitioner trained in the sciences, this manual will help you address public perceptions, promote management activities, and inform and/or motivate stakeholders.

Getting in Step Outreach Video

A video companion to the Getting in Step outreach guide reinforces the steps outlined in the guide and includes four very different examples of watershed outreach campaigns from different parts of the country. It is suitable for viewing by stakeholders, educators, or others interested in generating watershed outreach campaigns. The video, Getting in Step: A Video Guide for Conducting Watershed Outreach Campaigns (June 2003, EPA-841-V-03-001), can be ordered by calling the National Service Center for Environmental Publications at (800) 490-9198 or by visiting www.epa.gov/ncepihom.

Getting in Step Outreach Workshops

EPA sponsors outreach training workshops based on the six steps outlined in Getting In Step: A Guide for Conducting Watershed Outreach Campaigns. These 1- to 2-day workshops have been held across the country continuously since 1998. They continue to be quite popular and are regularly updated and customized for local and regional audiences. For more information about planning a workshop in your area, contact Don Waye at waye.don@epa.gov.

Getting in Step Outreach Training Module

A Web-based training module based on the Getting in Step outreach guide and presentations used in the outreach workshops is available as part of EPA's Watershed Academy Web.
