LITTLE ROCK — Reporters working in watersheds impaired by nonpoint source pollution
have an opportunity to brush up on their understanding of environmental science at
three upcoming water quality seminars hosted by the University of Arkansas System
Division of Agriculture. Simultaneously, Conservation District employees will have the chance to learn how to better communicate
their stories to the media. The side-by-side workshops will take place in September
and October in Little Rock, Monticello and Jonesboro.
The Nonpoint Source Pollution Media & Communications Seminar in September and October
will be a chance for reporters and editors to learn about information resources in
the state for water quality data and how waterways can become impaired.
At the seminar, participants will collect water quality samples alongside Conservation
District employees who will spend the day with Extension faculty learning communication
strategies. The joint program will also include a morning panel discussion about media
and conservation practices.
Takeaways from the seminar for members of the media include:
Conservation District members will learn strategies from Extension faculty about:
By the end of the day, Conservation District employees will have either a short video
to post online or a draft press release about the event using skills learned earlier
in the day. This free educational program is aimed helping local Conservation Districts
and media representatives form relationships that support better communications of
water quality issues.
Registration is now open at http://forms.uada.edu/nps. The seminar is free to attend
and lunch is included.
The goal of this free educational program, sponsored by a grant from the Arkansas
Natural Resources Commission, is to help media representatives and local Conservation
Districts form relationships that support better communications of water quality issues.
The seminar will be offered on three different dates, with sessions starting at 8:30
a.m. and ending at 4:30 p.m.:
Participants should bring their own laptop, and boots that can get wet. For more information
about the program, contact Kristin Higgins at 501-671-2160 or e-mail email@example.com.
With stakeholder input and water quality data, the Arkansas Natural Resources Commission
has identified 10 priority watersheds impaired by nonpoint source pollution. These
watersheds receive priority consideration for education and restoration or prevention
efforts. The map below shows the location and breadth of these impaired watersheds.
The Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service offers its programs to all eligible persons
regardless of race, color, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin,
