  • Seattle-Bellevue-Everett, WA (1888PressRelease) April 16, 2011 - New website design aims to build awareness for environmental education

    Efelle Media is always eager to extend their expertise to the non-profit sector. Partnerships like this are instrumental in increasing awareness and helping the community. The Hidden River Project is a multi-million dollar Community Environmental Education Center that will help teach community members how to balance the needs of our environment with the demands of the people of Puget Sound. Project leader, Schmeid, expressed to us his concern by saying, "We really need a better vehicle to promote the project. We've received large amounts of money by way of grants and private donations to make all that we have done so far possible, but we still have a long way to go."

    The 114 acre Brightwater Environment Education and Community Center was the Friends of the Hidden River's answer to King County's development of the Brightwater Wastewater Treatment Facility. "There is no way to get around the need for the Brightwater Wastewater Treatment Facility," said Schmeid, but, "the surrounding area has just grown too rapidly not to have measures in place, but what we can do is through an investment in environmental conservation education is help people, especially youth, become more aware of their effect on the environment."

    What will be accomplished by the partnership with Efelle Media?
    The needs of the Friends of the Hidden River group were very simple; a website that would allow for online donations, the ability for staff and volunteers to change and create content without extensive training, and most importantly exposure through organic search engine optimization. When evaluating their website's needs and existing issues, Efelle Media Founder and CEO, Fred Lebhart, felt it was the right project to get involved in despite the nature of non-profits' limited budgets. Fred explained, "The amount of capital that they were willing to raise and their overall commitment to the project is inspiring - and as a local company we always want support groups that are aggressive vehicles for change."
