Community Engagement Toolkit for Public Participation

As we plan our outreach and engagement efforts, we must be intentional with centering the community members we hope to reach. We must create authentic, sustainable relationships with community members to implement our programming successfully. Whether you are part of local government, a public department, or a nonprofit, the tools included in our Community Engagement Toolkit provide a foundation for your community engagement efforts. 

This resource was developed by a team that delivered a webinar on community engagement strategies for the Wisconsin DNR on May 15. The team included Fond du Lac county Educator, Noah Reif (she/hers). If you or your organization have additional questions or would like to schedule a meeting with your local Community Development Educator, please contact Noah at
