At first, Flathead Conservation District asked me just to help them make a few changes to their existing site. But when we sat down and started talking, it became clear that the easiest path to  the site of their dreams was to just start over with a new theme. Luckily, we decided this right at the beginning of an in person meeting, and their team was on board to just go for it. So within one day, we had a completely refreshed website for them.

There are a couple of things I loved about this project:

  1. It happened so fast! While I ironed out some of the technical stuff, they checked out the content and updated it. When I had a question about a layout, or what they wanted to feature on the homepage, they were right there to answer and the change was made immediately.
  2. The compliments we’ve gotten! Several other Conservation Districts have emailed me, basically saying that they want the same thing. Which is definitely a compliment. And Valerie sent me this note the other day:

It’s rare to get this kind of feedback in writing! Thanks again for your
help! See you tomorrow!

Hi Valerie,

I thought I’d take a quick peek at your updated website after our
conversation, and ended up poking around all over it.  It is very good – a
really big improvement.  One gets an understanding of what FCD does far
beyond just reading the mission statement.

Good work to Cynthia – and to you!
