CWI: Better Public Engagement Practices @ Houston-Galveston Area Council
Oct 24 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Public engagement is by definition a two-way process, involving interaction and listening, with the goal of generating mutual benefit between two or more groups. Most public entities conduct some form of public engagement regularly to better inform their internal processes and to meet federal, state and local requirements. But how can those entities and others in the region better engage in meaningful interactions with their constituents?

Join H-GAC for another Clean Waters Initiative workshop on Tuesday, October 24, 2017, from 2:00 to 4:00 PM at the Houston-Galveston Area Council, Conference Rooms B and C (second floor) to learn more about public engagement efforts in the region and how you can apply successful techniques to your own projects.

Speakers from the Galveston Bay FoundationArtist Boat, and the Texas A&M – Texas Coastal Watershed Program will provide participants with an overview of the mechanisms they have used to engage partners, stakeholders, and the public. Speakers will highlight which efforts have been successful, providing “lessons learned” to help attendees better engage in their respective communities.

Following each presentation, attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions and further delve into the topic area. For additional information or assistance, e-mail Kathy.Janhsen@h-gac.com or call 713-993-2423.

The Swamp Thing Gala – Bayou Land Conservancy Benefit @ Southwestern Energy Headquarters
Nov 11 @ 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Come join Bayou Land Conservancy on November 11, 2017, as they celebrate another successful year of conserving land along our bayous, creeks and streams at their “Swamp Thing Gala.” You might even learn some fun facts about wetlands and all the critters and plants that live there. Share a night of inspiration with co-workers, clients, friends and nature lovers. Who knows, you could catch a glimpse of the mysterious “swamp thing”! The event will be held at the beautiful Southwestern Energy Headquarters, a 26-acre property located adjacent to the Spring Creek Greenway just off I-45. The grounds are planted with native plants and grasses that are irrigated with water from the nearby retention ponds. The sites serves as an excellent example of environmentally friendly actions that we can all employ. Tickets and sponsorships are on sale and can be purchased online at bayoulandconservancy.secure.force.com.
