From Earth Day events to tree plantings to site tours, awareness and community engagement events serve as key gateway experiences for a wide audience to learn more about the species and habitats around them. These educational events can kickstart a lifelong passion for nature and science through STEM activities — and can even encourage participants to get involved in further conservation efforts.
Corporate habitats of all kinds can serve as sites of learning for employees, families and the broader community. Conservation-focused events can be centered around a national or international observance, a nearby habitat or native species, a conservation technique or more — the sky’s the limit. In this webinar, WHC staff will discuss how companies can develop meaningful community events to reach a diverse group of learners, instilling important messages about the value of nature while promoting learners’ continued involvement in conservation actions.
What you’ll learn:
- How to align awareness and community events with annual observances or celebrations
- The value of including citizen science activities in community events
- How to work toward WHC Certification for an awareness or community engagement event
Who should take this webinar:
- Corporations interested in building relationships with their employees and local communities
- Conservation teams with a strong habitat or species project that want to share their knowledge
- Anyone interested in learning more about hosting a conservation-focused community event
