Coming Soon to a Computer Monitor Near You! Exciting News and Free Stuff!
Here in the Environmental Services Division, talking to
people about stormwater isn’t just a hobby of ours: it’s required!We have a permit through the DNR that
requires us to talk to people in the city about stormwater pollution and how to
reduce it (although we would probably do it even without the permit).Like every other organization, we’re
constantly looking for new ways to bring our information to you…hence this
blog.Starting in February, we have a
new way of communicating with you about environmental topics that affect
you.We’re starting a bimonthly webinar
Webinars are like seminars you can attend in your slippers.
If you’re not familiar with webinars, they are similar to a
seminar.A webinar is a seminar/presentation
that is held over the internet.Someone
(that’s us) presents on a topic and participants (that’s you) watch and listen
live.We will have guest speakers who
are experts or can offer different insights on our topics.Some of the topics we plan to cover include:
winter salt application, pharmaceutical disposal, the importance of trees in
stormwater management, rain gardens, etc.Every webinar will also be recorded and posted to our website upon
completion so you can watch them later if you can’t make the live presentation.
If you have any suggestions for topics,
let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To register for a webinar, visit our website at
can click the link that is listed under each upcoming webinar; more will
be posted throughout the year.You will
have to fill out a short form, and then you’ll receive an email
confirmation.On the day of the webinar,
you can click the link in your email (or in one of the reminder emails) and
voila! you’re attending our webinar.There is also a tab at the top of this blog where you’ll find more
webinar information and the registration links.
In addition to
learning more about water and the environment, for every webinar you attend live (if
you are a City of Superior resident) between now and June 1st, you
will receive one entry into a drawing for a free rain barrel.The drawing will take place in the beginning
