Culturally Inclusive Watershed Education and Engagement Pilot Project

The project was designed to build capacity of people from culturally diverse backgrounds to be watershed champions and to enable behavior change to benefit salmon and watersheds. The project provided in-depth training and learning opportunities for 25 participants from Chinese and Punjabi backgrounds. These participants then designed and implemented targeted engagement activities for their communities, which focused on actions individuals could take to reduce their impact on salmon and watersheds. A total of 27 people from Chinese and Punjabi backgrounds were engaged in this outreach process, 25 of whom participated throughout the entire process.
