IAN has just finished teaching a course in science communication to a group of local riverkeepers and other environmental professionals. Participants represented organizations from areas such as the Sassafras River, the Rappahannock River, and Maryland's Coastal Bays. Many of the groups are developing their own ecosystem report cards so there was a special emphasis on synthesizing and integrating data. An addition to the course was the playing of the new IAN/SeaWeb board game TRADE-OFF!, teaching students about balancing conservation and real-world pressures, and the power of negotiation. We announce future courses via this eNewsletter, or you can email us to inquire about running a custom course.
