Let us love winter, for it is the spring of genius.    -Pietro Aretino

As the weather gets more inclement, it can become harder to work on outreach projects in the outdoors.  There’s still plenty to do outside, so don’t give up on them entirely!  However, for those who are less inclined to brave the colder temperatures and snowy climes, there’s lots of indoor outreach options!  Now is the time to engage in public speaking, trifold, and other educational projects.  Many organizations, such as Quality Deer Management Association, Audubon chapters, Trout Unlimited, and many more are having their winter meetings- this would be a great opportunity to ask if you could bring your trifold and talk about your experience at camp.  Some other ideas for cold-weather activities are:

  • Set up your trifold in a local library display as an unmanned trifold project
  • Give a talk to your local scout troop (about WLA or about an outdoors topic that interests you – your choice!)
  • Volunteer at a banquet for one of the groups mentioned above – help set up, tear down, serve food, etc
  • Write me an article or blog post – email them to me directly at any time!  🙂
  • Work on creative arts projects – sketching, journaling, painting – recreate that winter scene you see from your window

 

To find a chapter near you of one of the organizations mentioned above, simply click on their name below:

There’s a great variety of projects you can work on from the warmth of the indoors – don’t let the colder temperatures slow you down!  As always, if you need more ideas, or have any questions, you can always call, text (570-939-5109), or email (kcassidy@piceweb.org) me anytime.

 

Happy Outreach,

Katie
