Outreach Education

Now going on 8 years since our inception, RTI continues to find ways to contact and inform our clients about research, projects, and new technologies that may impact both rural and urban communities in the state of Washington. Below are some of our efforts toward outreach education.

RTI Outreach Education efforts:
  • Continue offering a very successful series of technology training workshops in the areas of GIS, GPS and LMS. (See the Training page).

  • Host and participate in educational programs and seminars, such as:
    - The Northwest Environmental Forum
    - Riparian Zone Management Strategies
    - Puget Sound Forest Owners Field Day
    - The WFFA Annual Meeting
    - The Fall Forestry Educational Seminar
    - International Red Alder Syposium
    - (see the RTI Related Events page)

  • Fund graduate students working with faculty and Extension personnel. In working for RTI they receive valuable training and assistance, and enter the job market with better technological skills.

  • Publish and distribute a fact sheets, articles and papers on subjects that relate to current RTI projects. (See Publications)

  • Maintain and improve the RTI website.
