Abstract:

This manual was developed for educators and natural resource managers who are establishing interpretive programs where biodiversity is the richest and most threatened. The manual contains five units which are based on the experiences of staff at the American Museum of Natural History and represent the key steps of designing an interpretation program. Units include: (1) Program Development, which describes how to develop interpretive programs to encourage biodiversity conservation; (2) Interpretive Exhibits, which displays graphics or objects assembled to convey a message to viewers; (3) Interpretive Presentations, which covers presentations offered by interpretive centers such as activities or guided tours; (4) Community Outreach, which encourages environmental facilitators to"reach out" beyond the walls of an interpretive center; and (5) Evaluation Process, which discusses evaluating the interpretive program. Key terms are listed at the back of the manual. (YDS).
