Engaging the Public

Interpretation has become a powerful tool used by volunteers to engage the community.  This workshop is recommended for volunteers, stewards, and people  who work in conservation, restoration and want to provide engaging education during programs, events, or work days.  We will review the history and use of interpretation,  how to communicate effectively and the application of interpretation. Learn how to  develop meaningful interpretive programs through hands-on activities and applications for program use.
