One way to build your skills and resources is to connect with other colleagues. Many organizations provide listserves that allow users to query each other and to share information.

  • EPA Mailing Lists provide useful news and announcements on a variety environmental topics and workgroups. Many of these lists are open to the public while other lists require membership approval.
  • “Scuttlebutt”, the Bridge discussion list, provides a forum for marine educators to talk informally about marine education ideas, issues, and questions. See the link on the Bridge home page.
  • Water Resources Discussion Lists are topical electronic forums compiled by the Water Quality Information Center at the USDA National Agricultural Library.

As we learn about other list serves that may interest you, we’ll list them here.
