Client: Skagit Watershed Council
Case Study: Peak worked with staff and educators to develop a communication framework to educate and engage a variety of people in the diversely populated Skagit community. Our engagement plan included a photo contest, blogs, establishing a social media presence, and the creation of a yearly Resource Guide comprised of 50+ environmental education and stewardship efforts. Our engagement campaign included hashtags with unifying themes and a survey designed of fifty organizations that provide environmental education in Skagit County.
Impact: The Council wanted more social media presence and greater engagement. Peak created a Facebook page and then held a yearlong photo contest to jump start engagement and increase the Council’s web presence. This contest also created a photo content library for the Council. Their Facebook now has nearly 1,300 followers. The outreach to watershed environmental education entities yielded a STEAM Resource Guide for educators seeking education opportunities for K-12 students in Skagit County. Peak developed an engagement campaign and research which resulted in a portfolio of interviews and videos of community members engaged in work which enhances the quality of life in the Skagit. Peak continues to support the Council’s Community Engagement Committee.
Testimonial: “Peak has consistently provided the Skagit Watershed Council with quality consulting services. They have provided research and advice in support of our strategic planning efforts, including highly skilled facilitation services. We would highly recommend them to any organization seeking professional services.” Richard Brocksmith, Skagit Watershed Council, Executive Director
