The Natural Resources and Community Development Initiative banner was prepared for an exhibition display at the biennial conference of the National Association of Community Development Extension Professionals. The purpose of the banner is to highlight the variety of work that University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) supports through its natural resource educational programs performed by Extension agents and specialists.
The primary audience was Extension educators, academic leaders, and other related industry representatives. More than 450 individuals attended the conference.
The banner was part of a display at the UF/IFAS table at the conference. The display included the priority areas for natural resource work, with existing programs in each of those categories.
Providing Florida-specific images was also important to help audiences connect with natural resource settings that are at-risk or could benefit from additional protection.
