What did Southern Appalachian Wilderness Stewards need?

Monica helped Southern Appalachian Wilderness Stewards enhance their annual reports, grant applications, and other marketing materials with compelling narratives about their organization’s mission, activities, and achievements.

Why is this project important?

SAWS is regularly applauded by our industry partners for the quality and impact of our work. We are often cited as leaders in the environmental field for employing an innovative model to accomplish stewardship work on public lands and building strong partnerships. Despite this fact, we remain relatively unknown in the communities in which we work. This is primarily because we are a small team with limited communications capacities. We have stories to tell, but no one on staff dedicated to producing or disseminating the materials. We are look to grow our brand recognition so more people know about us!

This project will save us $2,397, allowing us to buy gear, supplies, and food for our seasonal crews out working in the field to keep our public lands open and safe for visitor use!

Currently working at a not-for-profit health professions society, I'm hoping to stay in touch with my love of writing about things that matter, and more importantly effectively communicating WHY they matter. My interdisciplinary academic experience has exposed me to the many ways we can use words: be it for simple enjoyment or to persuade and inform. The intersection of culture and health is a particular interest of mine, and I love making creative connections easy to understand and a pleasure to read.
