Watershed Network Gathering

Received the following from the Dane County Office of Lakes and Watersheds:

In 2011, the Dane County Office of Lakes and Watersheds conducted a survey of local groups throughout Dane County to learn more about their outreach and communication activities designed to raise awareness and inspire action to protect and restore water quality, habitat and other aspects of watershed health. Attached you will find a summary of those findings.

Respondents indicated an interest in collaborating. To that end, we have scheduled a Watershed Network Gathering for Friday, April 26, 2013, 1–4 p.m. in Conference Rooms A&B at 5201 Fen Oak Drive (formerly One Fen Oak Court), Madison, WI.


  • Introductions (including your group’s priorities, challenges and successes)
  • Show-n-Share of outreach tools and materials
  • Needs/Yields Collaboration (what does your group need most; what can your group share to help others)
  • Capacity Building Brainstorming (ideas of ways to address group needs to expand capacity)
  • Future Directions
