Outreach Strategies for Community Wildfire Preparedness and Recovery (day 2)

April 9, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT

Free, interactive workshop; Engage your audience and compel action through targeted communication.

As Washington State’s population and wildfire risk increase, it can feel daunting to figure out how to reach different types of at-risk landowners. How do we encourage them to take steps that better prepare them for living in wildfire country? The good news is you’re not alone! This virtual and interactive workshop will connect you with experts, peers, and resources to help reach your target audience and engage them with wildfire preparedness and recovery actions.

At the end of our two half-days together, you will leave with new tools and hands-on training that you can put to work in your outreach efforts.
