EPA Tools and Resources Webinar Series

Free webinars typically held the third Wednesday of every month from 3:00-4:00 PM (ET). 

EPA's Office of Research and Development (ORD) hosts this monthly public webinar series to translate EPA research and share research resources and information that are useful, practical/applied and available to meet research needs of states/territories and other entities, such as tribes, local governments, and communities. In addition, the EPA Tools and Resources Training Webinar Series provides in-depth overviews and step-by-step tutorials on popular EPA science-based models and tools. 

NOTE: Attendees have the option of receiving a certificate of attendance. Acceptance of certificates is contingent on organization requirements—EPA cannot guarantee acceptance. Closed-captioned recordings of the webinars are provided below for later viewing and as a training resource; certificates cannot be provided for viewing webinar recordings. Webinar dates and topics are subject to change.

Proctor Creek Watershed Story MapProctor Creek at Grove Park, Atlanta, GAProctor Creek at Grove Park, Atlanta, GA

Register for the Proctor Creek Watershed Story Map webinar. 

Part of EPA’s mandate is to restore and maintain watersheds and their aquatic ecosystems to protect human health, support economic and recreational activities, and provide healthy habitat for fish, plants and wildlife. Substantial coordination and informed decisions and actions at the local and state levels are required to ensure this success. Recently, EPA developed the Proctor Creek Watershed Story Map in collaboration with Proctor Creek residents and stakeholders in Atlanta, Georgia to share important information about the Proctor Creek watershed; explore community-identified concerns, such as flooding and water quality, urban heat islands, mosquitoes, and health; and consider the potential for green infrastructure to address those concerns.

This presentation provides an overview of Story Maps (i.e., easy-to-use interactive online tools that combine maps with narrative text, images, and multimedia content), and how they can be used to: 

  • Inform, connect with, and engage communities as stewards of their environment; and 
  • Aid in future decision-making that is protective of human health and the environment.

Explore the Proctor Creek Watershed Story Map.
