This month involved a variety of tasks pertaining to wood smoke pollution and education/outreach opportunities. I'm assisting the Education/Outreach coordinator with Wood Smoke Education requirements that must be completed by a June grant deadline, including but not limited to creating educational materials, designing surveys, coordinating webinars, and organizing the distribution of information. April also led me to a number of demonstrations discussing public concern related to Marcellus Shale gas drilling - GASP has been networking with different environmental groups to make sure that air quality effects are considered along with drilling effects on water resources. In general, during staff meetings and through email reading, I am slowly amassing a greater understanding of air quality issues and the legal aspects of air quality cases. I am also growing my understanding of the political structure that dictates air quality regulation decisions and enforcement, by attending meetings and through further reading and discussion with the GASP staff.
