Of course social media is a huge topic - both because of its complexity and because it's so *now*.
Join us for a fully wired and completely plugged-in conversation about social media. Land conservation and environmental organizations are using the internet to engage with people, build movements, tell their stories, and achieve their mission. How can we all use these tools in our work to preserve land and connect people to it? What are the strategies we should all have in mind? What is possible?
Our Almost-Spring Gathering will be held on March 15 from 10am-1pm at the Brower Center in downtown Berkeley. Our panel will include:
- Goodby Silverstein and Partners and Audubon talking about Birding the Net
- Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy talking about the whole communications package
- iNaturalist and Pepperwood Preserve talking about citizen science and its links to social media
- Others to be announced.
Lunch will be served, tweeting will be encouraged, and there will be plenty of time of networking.
