RFP for Stewardship and Engagement Workshop Leaders

WCA is issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP) to identify workshop leaders to partner with on a series of planning workshops on the topic of Stewardship and Engagement in relation to WCA’s Azusa Foothills Open Space lands. These workshops will take place on WCA’s Azusa Foothills Open Space lands on the south facing side of Glendora Ridge, which may be accessed for the purposes of this project via a guided .75 mile hike of approximately 12% grade. 

WCA anticipates selecting multiple workshop leaders from a variety of perspectives from this Request for Proposals. Selected consultants will serve as guest conversation leaders on topics of their interest and expertise in relation to Azusa Foothills Open Space, and will collaborate with WCA Project Manager to organize and conduct walking tours and field workshops that promote appreciation and dialogue about conservation lands in Azusa in relation to their areas of interest. WCA encourages those of all backgrounds, ages, and abilities to apply.

Workshop leaders will also produce a written report on workshop results. Themes and content developed in the workshops will be incorporated into stewardship guidelines, prototypes of interpretive signage for WCA’s foothills open space lands, and web content. Workshop leaders shall additionally provide feedback on draft interpretive materials produced by WCA staff and collaborators.

Stipends for selected workshop leaders are anticipated to be between $2,000-$3,000 but may be greater or lesser depending on the scope proposed, and negotiated, and total number of proposals selected by WCA. Stipend must be inclusive of all costs incurred by workshop leaders. The contracted activities shall take place between August 1, 2022 and February 18, 2023.
