JSI worked with the Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve on Cape Cod to conduct a community cultural assessment to obtain information about the demographics, beliefs, and interests of populations which don't speak English as a primary language living in the Reserve watershed area. The goal was to assist the Reserve to develop a well-targeted program that will better engage underserved populations in the Reserve's activities, both to enrich their lives, as well as enlist them as better stewards of the coast.
