Trainings & Workshops Early October

Colorado Watershed Assembly is offering a free “Promoting Data Literacy through Data Visualization Storyboards” workshop on Tuesday, October 9th from 8:00 am - 11:30 am at the Westin in Avon, CO. Bring out your data! Come with your laptop and questions and be prepared to dig into your community data. What are the concerns relating to water in your community? How are you using data collection and visualization tools to communicate water issues? We will work through a community issue from data collection and analysis to a mapped visualization and look at stream storytelling in a holistic way. This workshop will discuss the use of graphics to illustrate and communicate data stories that are both engaging and informative. Individuals with a background in local community organization, government, academia and private business are encouraged to attend. For more information and registration click HERE.
