Short Description of Activity
I participated as a panelist to talk about our experiences doing field checking with our Broadband. Three other panelists representing other conservation organizations participated.
I requested to go after the other three knowing that they would give more professional presentations about their organizations’ field checking processes including the possible need for litigation and how the very specific information we gather factors into that. My presentation was a more home-spun description of a day in the field with the Broads. I encouraged the audience to join the organization and get invoved in our efforts. There was an embarrasssing glitch at the end when I attempted to share the 4 minute beautiful video that one of our members created following a field checking outing in October. I could see and hear it on my screen but everyone else could only hear it and I didn’t realize that until I stopped screen sharing after it. Fortunately the audio was engaging enough that many people requested the video be sent to them.
