ESAL webinar - Shared screen with speaker view
Emily Moran
20:20
Is there a way to leave full-screen? I’d like to be able to take notes… Zoom won’t seem to allow me to “exit full screen” as usual
Maura Palacios- UCLA
21:20
Select screen and hit escape
Emily Moran
21:57
Yeah, that’s one of the methods that isn’t working. I figure it might be an organizer setting?
Hazel Anderson
22:40
Try the view options next to "You are viewing..."
Emily Moran
23:11
Did that too. None of the usual ways work.
Kevin Brown
23:16
my screen shows view in the upper right - that's how I exited full screen
Emily Moran
23:42
That didn’t work either.
Maura Palacios- UCLA
27:36
Culverts are a problem in California too
ESA - Nicole Zimmerman (she/her)

Sorry! I wasn't see the option to exit full screen either but I was able to exit full screen by minimizing the Zoom window. I am not seeing anything in the settings that would prevent people from getting out of full screen.

State of Alaska has an interactive map showing culverts as good or problematic -- do other states have that?
SJRWMD Robert Mattson

Check with Am. Fisheries Society? I know some of their members were "big time" into fish passage/culverts and identifying problem areas, mitigation, etc.

Feel free to type questions in the chat and we will address them as we can

This is what I found for California: https://map.dfg.ca.gov/metadata/ds0069.html

I have a question from the first part on local policy advocacy: Do you, or what are your suggestions for, engaging with the community and grassroots organizations for advocating for local policy change?
ESAL - Chris Jackson (he/him)
51:28
Working with local organizations can be extremely effective! The ESAL blog highlights many local groups working in policy: https://www.esal.us/blog/category/local-stem/

Thank you all for sharing your expertise! This is all very helpful. I’m wondering about how far outside of your science specialty you tend to go when participating in science policy? For example, would it appropriate for a wildlife biologist to engage on issues related to, say, municipal solar energy? And to engage not just as a citizen, but as someone who has scientific expertise. Any advice you have on navigating that would be incredibly helpful!

(ESAL) - Here is also some information on fish safe culvert design guidelines in California: https://dot.ca.gov/programs/design/manual-fish-passage-design-for-roadway-crossings

(ESAL) - Rhiannon, we have featured many, many engineers & scientists who have engaged in policy and advocacy discussions outside the areas they are trained in: https://www.esal.us/blog/category/stories-from-the-field/

I wrote about this for the ESA blog a couple of years ago: https://www.esal.us/blog/all-politics-are-local/
Maura Palacios- UCLA
55:45
What financial support is available for this type participation?
Kevin Brown
55:59
Rhiannon, if you've trained as a scientist, you have a way of evaluating evidence that others may not have - and should recognize your own limitations. That alone is a valuable contribution.
ESA - Nicole Zimmerman (she/her)
57:06
I have a question if no one else has more pressing questions -- any thoughts on the differences in state-level advocacy across the states? For example, when Chris was talking, I was thinking about how in some states, state lawmakers have very limited staff. It seems like that might be different in California?
Rhiannon Jakopak
01:02:02
Thank you all for addressing my question!
ESAL - Kendra Zamzow [she/her]

ESA Alison Mize (she/her)
01:07:46
Can you talk about how scientists in one state can use other local initiatives as examples to start in their community? CA is always leading the way. Any ideas on leveraging impact?
ESAL - Kendra Zamzow [she/her]
01:07:59

e.g. Grants

A lot of service on local Boards, Commissions, etc. is voluntary, as Kendra just said. You could try for a paid position with an advocacy group.

Re scientists leveraging impact -- I think some of that can be done through professional societies, as someone mentioned before Am Fish Soc addresses culverts -- so partly presenting examples of policy solutions could leverage other city/county level adoptation

Thank you!
