What We Do

Organizations and advocates work hard, every day, to solve the nation's environmental problems. But no single person or organization can change the world on their own. It takes an informed and engaged public to get things done.

That's where we come in.

We inspire people to learn more, take action and build lasting connections to our precious lands and waters. We achieve this through highly-tailored and strategic outreach and communications campaigns, coalition management and by building organizational capacity.


Our Mission

Bluestem Communications researches, designs, implements and evaluates communication and education strategies to connect existing personal values to environmental causes. Our work motivates targeted audiences—like homeowners, business owners and elected officials—to value the role healthy ecosystems play in sustaining quality of life and to take action to protect and restore Earth's natural resources. We partner with other nonprofit organizations, coalitions and agencies to improve their internal and external communications to advance their environmental goals.
