I have an idea that I would like to share...
Josh, Carolyn, and I were brainstorming ways to spark people’s interest in USEE and environmental education, particularly during outreach and tabling events. We were trying to think of ways to attract people to our organization’s table and get them interested in our projects, programs, and environmental education in general.
The idea hit me…
USEE should adopt an office pet!
Think of the animal as a mascot that would assist USEE in exciting people about environmental education in Utah.
USEE would love to hear from you. Is this a good idea? Is this a bad idea? What type of animal would you recommend? We could always consider alternatives to using a live animal, like using mounts, skins, skulls, wings, feathers, pictures, etc. to gain interest. Do you think one of these alternatives would have the same effect in attracting attention from people?
