Double Feature: WICDI’s Summer In-Person and Virtual Workshops, Part 1

An innovative bridge ensures no more culvert washouts at this site.

After three virtual events, we at WICDI were thrilled to have the opportunity to organize an in-person workshop in a small-group setting this past July. For this field-based event, Community of Practice connections led us to Lincoln Township, in Bayfield County.

However, in the past several months we’ve become well-versed in the art of the virtual meeting, and its close cousin, the virtual presentation. In today’s blog post, I’ll recap both our in-person and our online presentations for WLIA this year.
