Outdoor Recreation 3410 Interpretation and Guiding
Heritage interpretation is a communication process and informal educational activity offered at tourism destinations, protected areas, heritage places, museums, outdoor leadership venues, and community sites of interest. Interpretive guides and media aim to connect people with natural and cultural values; reveal hidden stories and meanings; enhance cultural understanding and ecological literacy, and create thought-provoking, memorable experiences. Relevant theories in communication, informal and adult education, psychology, and recreation planning are applied to the planning, delivery, and evaluation of various interpretive media. Regional, national and international examples illustrate the diverse styles and approaches used in the interpretation profession.
