The demand to actively engage communities is increasingly essential to the success of a project. In response to this demand, having someone dedicated to managing your public engagement and communication will benefit both staff and community members affected by the work.

What started as an idea for a book about the water cycle, in coordination with the Smithsonian Water/Ways traveling exhibit, turned into a series of books to teach children about the work we do. Bolton & Menk is not only passionate about our clients, we also thrive to make the communities where we live, work and play a better place. These books have given us an opportunity to give back through classroom visits and book readings.
