Enhancing Community Engagement with Data


Craig Cornu of the South Slough Estuarine Research Reserve in Coos County, Oregon, and Alyssum Pohl, NOAA Digital Coast Fellow here at NACo, join to discuss the role of data and information in community decision making and community engagement. Since 2009 the South Slough Reserve has been working with local stakeholders to create information – environmental and socio-economic – to help inform the community’s decision making process. Hear about the reserve’s efforts, the ups and downs of the project, and key takeaways for counties interested in developing a similar engagement program.

This podcast includes music by YACT, Christian Bjoerklund, Podington Bear, Jahzzar, and Monk Turner.
