Tim’s whitepaper (2013) to WSU Extension Director on proposed future scenario

E-mail from Barb dated May 14, 2013: [NOTE: a link to the whitepaper follows the email message]

Dear Beach Watchers,

Several months ago, Tim Lawrence, Director, WSU Island County Extension, presented the attached White Paper to the Director of WSU Extension.   While the original assignment was to consider the future of the Beach Watchers program, Dr. Lawrence took this opportunity to research university-based environmental programs across the country and develop suggestions for WSU’s environmental outreach statewide.  The Beach Watchers program is included in the broad, conceptual framework described in the attached paper.

 The paper has been well received and a committee has been formed, under Tim’s leadership, to define a way forward on the concepts and to develop a core environmental curriculum for outreach programs.  That committee has met 2 times and I am pleased to serve on the committee.

 This paper sets out themes that will likely shape the future of the Beach Watchers program and other WSU environmental outreach programs.  It invites the potential of strong and diverse statewide environmental outreach and sets the stage for exciting possibilities ahead.
