Science Writing: Creating and Sharing Good, True, and Inclusive Stories of Science

The Schoodic Institute, based at Acadia National Park, is a nonprofit partner of the National Park Service whose mission is to inspire science, learning, and community for a changing world. Writing and communication is a vital part of the work because information makes a difference, and communication inspires people to think about nature and how they take care of each other and the planet. And with so much misinformation out there, it is more important than ever to create and share good, true stories of science and these require collaboration and diverse perspectives.

Watch this Write Out event with science writer Catherine Schmitt to learn how she approaches her writing and the ways that Schoodic Institute and National Park Service are supporting inclusive science writing. Catherine is joined by Park Ranger Amber Kirkendall from Homestead National Historical Park who also shares about her experience with historical writing, leading outdoor writing programs, and Write Out.
