THREE INVASIVE SPECIES WEBSITES
One of our greatest accomplishments of 2014 was to earn the business of three out of eight working groups in the New York invasive species network. Make that four working groups, because we developed a site for the first one way back in 2008 when we were cutting our teeth on WordPress.
We completed a site for the Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program in March (http://adkinvasives.com/). We just contracted with the Western New York PRISM for early next year. And we are putting finishing touches on a site for the Finger Lakes PRISM as we speak. You can see elements of our design here:
For the clients (each independently operated), it made sense financially and energetically to have one company build out each site. Each sites includes an invasive species glossary/index that helps visitors identify and learn about invasive species, so we are able to share the technology, images, and content across each site, while allowing each client a different “look and feel” and organization. From the clients’ perspective, this saved time during the content strategy and content entry phase. It is a real privilege to help the invasive species put their best foot forward on this important subject.
In addition to these projects, we are working on a variety of website and communications projects including:
- One birding ecolodge website for an Amazon conservation group.
- One LAKE MANAGEMENT website
- One long-term contract for a BIRD HABITAT CONSERVATION GROUP
- Redesign of NATURE TRAVEL NETWORK (underway)
- One BIRD CLUB website (rochesterbirding.com)
- One Business Management/Development project with LOCAL LANDSCAPER
- One Online Marketing project with a TOUR OPERATOR
- Ongoing content development for a nonprofit organization http://senecawhitedeer.org/)
I (Laura Kammermeier) will have another busy year of travel and work ahead, especially now that I’ve been nominated as the President of my local bird club. I’m eager to dig in and help the club expand and make a difference in her community. I hope to hit the Rutland BirdFair and Africa sometime this year. Good thing I have a great team at home to keep things going when I’m away.
My Digital Nature is looking to help another three major clients in 2015. If you or someone you know is looking for web developer and communications company with great coding, design, and content writing skills, then the My Digital Nature team can help. Your word of mouth recommendation goes a lot further than a fancy brochure ever could.
Thanks, and may you have a prosperous new year.
