Outreach and engagement workshop coming to Kansas July 25-27

“The Changing Face of Engagement: Reaching the 21st Century Forest and Rangeland Client,” a workshop for professionals who work with landowners, stewards and producers on forest lands and rangelands, is set for July 25-27 in Manhattan, Kansas.

The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and Texas A&M Natural Resources Institute are hosting the workshop at the Hilton Garden Inn, 410 S. Third St. in Manhattan. The workshop will begin at 1 p.m. July 25 and conclude at 11:30 a.m. July 27.

Early registration is $100 and available online at http://bit.ly/2q7P7At. Registration at the door is $125.

This workshop is designed to help participants build skills and expertise in reaching multi-generations on the land through understanding how people hear and process information and recognizing different learning styles between generations.

Keynote speaker Amy Lynch, a generational intelligence expert, will discuss crucial values and trends that can help professionals understand how their words and actions impact their outreach and programming.

Amy Hays, an outreach and education specialist, will discuss what rangeland or natural resource programming looks like when learners’ needs drive the program design.

Funding for the workshop was provided by a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
