Waquoit Bay Cultural Needs Assessment

Download this publicationCultural competency is gaining recognition as an important element of open space/environmental management. This community cultural assessment obtained information about the demographics, beliefs, needs, and interests of recent immigrant populations whose first language is not English. The goal was to assist the Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve to develop a well-targeted program that will better engage underserved populations in the Reserve's activities, both to enrich their lives and to enlist them as stewards of the coastal environment.
