Bluestem Communications helps national, regional and local organizations and agencies by creating strategic communication campaigns with measurable goals, teaching them how to be better communicators, implementing whole or parts of campaigns, creating materials and providing guidance and support for coalitions.

We work within limited nonprofit and municipal budgets to help meet necessary education and outreach goals on issues like stormwater pollution; grow coalitions; and train staff members how to use best communications practices in their everyday communications work. As an environmental nonprofit organization, Bluestem Communications also brings our environmental and community credibility and reputation to every project we take on.

Our unique approach to communications consulting offers several multi-faceted communications services to clients and partners. Within each service, as listed below, we can work with groups on a one-time only small project or on a multi-year program. We offer services on a contract basis, but are also frequently written into grant proposals for communications projects.

Communications Strategy
We employ an audience-centric approach that considers the specific values and beliefs of the target audience.

Coalition Management
Bluestem Communications has a successful history of bringing together and facilitating diverse groups with varied agendas to achieve common goals.

Public Education and Outreach Campaigns
We have extensive experience creating a full range of top-quality, cost-effective materials from full exhibits and brochures to websites and environmental beer coasters.

Public Opinion Research
Bluestem Communications commissions, manages and disseminates public opinion studies that help organizations develop smarter and more incisive education and communications campaigns.

Organizational Capacity Building
Building the communications capacity of environmental groups is a critical component of our work. We increase individual and coalition-wide communications capacity through half or full day workshops and trainings, project-based consulting hours and communications audits.

Stormwater Education Outreach
Bluestem Communications works within limited municipal budgets to help meet necessary education and outreach goals on issues like stormwater pollution.

Stakeholder Engagement
Bluestem Communications identifies key stakeholders and develops strategies to engage them in projects using tailored messages and carefully-chosen activities. We can facilitate sensitive meetings, motivate participants and provide the tools to implement long-term engagement plans.
