Beyond the Headlines: Wisconsin’s Water Future
How has the state’s rich water heritage shaped the resource of today, its regulation and use? What are the issues we face with both quantity and quality? What solutions will assure clean and plentiful water for the future? Where do we find and how do we use data that allow us to understand and further the story of Wisconsin’s water?
“Beyond the Headlines: Wisconsin’s Water Future” is a half-day workshop that will provide reporters and interested public with background, resources and tips for covering news about Wisconsin’s water. The workshop will be held from 1-5:30 p.m. on April 26 at the Pyle Center, 702 Langdon St., Madison.
“Beyond the Headliners: Wisconsin’s Water Future” is a project of the Wisconsin Humanities Council, in partnership with the Wisconsin Newspaper Association, and others in Madison. It is funded in part by a grant from the Mellon Foundation, in partnership with the Pulitzer Prizes.
The workshop will be moderated by Ron Seely, an award-winning science and environmental journalist who wrote for the Wisconsin State Journal for nearly 35 years. There is no fee to register.
The WNA is offering six $50 stipends to members who want to attend the workshop to help cover costs for transportation and food. The stipends are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
