DEP workshop to focus on environmental messaging
HUNTINGTON -- The state Department of Environmental Protection will hold a free two-day workshop this fall to help West Virginia communities better educate people about the effects of storm water on rivers and streams.
The workshop called "Water Words That Work" is set for Oct. 16-17 at the Big Sandy Superstore Arena Conference Center in Huntington. The featured speaker is Eric Eckl, a nationally known expert on communicating environmental messages.
The training is geared toward officials who run storm sewer systems but is open to any environmental group that wants help with its messaging. To register, contact Sherry Wilkins at Sherry.L.Wilkins(at)wv.gov.
