interpretation resource

A friend of mine, Kerry Waylen, who produced the well-being and botanic gardens report last year for BGCI, sent me a useful link via face book the other day. Face book is one of these Internet networking sites, where you have your own profile and can load up pictures and send messages to your friends etc. Anyway, she had come across an interpretation guide, produced in 1999 (but still relevant) by the American Museum of Natural History, designed for educators working in the tropics.

The guide is quite comprehensive, with chapters on exhibits, presenting, community outreach and evaluation. It is available in English, French and Spanish and is free to download, which is handy, and covers all the basics for developing interpretive programmes. Do have a look and let us know what you think by leaving some comments.
