As we welcome the new year, we want to express how thankful we are to our amazing clients, partners, and staff. Here are a few 2019 highlights as we enter 2020, marking our 10th year in business!
We started Green Fin Studio in 2010 knowing there was an urgent need to change how science and conservation information was being communicated. Would there be a demand for this work though? A decade later the answer has been a resounding “yes”. We are filled with gratitude and joy to have the opportunity to get to know all of you, work with you, and share your stories, research, goals, and successes. A huge thanks to all of you who make this work possible!
Last year worked with the Chesapeake Bay Program to develop a website that provides funding and technical assistance information on wetland restoration for agricultural land owners, Wetlands Work. As part of this effort, we conducted dozens of interviews with wetland restoration experts throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed. We also developed web content, provided graphic design support, and provided photography and videography services.
The Potomac Conservancy brought us onboard to conduct GIS analysis to identify high priority land parcels for conservation easements. We also developed several communications products associated with their conservation easement efforts including a brochure, fact sheets, and an ESRI Storymap.
We continued our ongoing support for the Delmarva Land and Litter Collaborative. We facilitate this group’s efforts to create collaborative solutions to help reduce the impact of poultry farming on the Delmarva peninsula.
One of our favorite projects that we’ve been involved with over the years is Restore Urbanna Creek. This year we created an award winning video about the project and developed a data storage portal for the student scientists who collect water quality data on Urbanna Creek. We also wrapped up a project that identified storm water management problems in the Town of Urbanna and presented solutions to these issues.
We provided communications support to Capital Trees in the form of graphic design and photography services. Capital Trees is a group devoted to creating green spaces in Richmond, VA.
We developed a new website for the Chesapeake Bay Program’s Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee. The new site includes a searchable publications database so site visitors have easy access to the many reports and other technical documents this group produces every year.
And we continued our ongoing support of the Chesapeake Research Consortium, publishing their quarterly newsletter, assisting with their social media, and helping to manage their summer internship program.
Looking forward to fantastic 2020!
