Workshop: Communicating and Collaborating to Protect Vermont’s River Corridors

IMG_6127Nearly 50 people came together for a workshop in January, 2016 to discuss how we can better communicate and collaborate to protect river corridors. From discussions of language to humorous metaphors, strategies to reach target audiences and stories of success, the group shared dozens of practical ideas and many ongoing challenges.

We’ve compiled a list of resources, notes and materials from the workshop here. We invite you to explore and add to the list, building our collective ability to encourage people and municipalities to protect river corridors everywhere.
