One essential aspect of learning a new skill is learning how not to do the new skill. In her presentation, Michelle will share her early failures and misconceptions around being a science communicator. Don’t worry, she’ll also share what’s working and lessons learned along the way. She hopes you’ll leave the talk feeling more empowered than ever to share your passion for native plants with others.
