Some Educational and Interpretive Approaches
Fresh ideas that will get more children off couches and into nature.
This session features the collaborative work of a trail designer/builder, an outdoor education program administrator, and an interpretive planner/designer. They will share experiences of watching synergy at work on trails, ways to make trails and open space areas interesting and fun for youth, how trails can be designed for use in outdoor education, and how interpretive media on trails invite younger audiences to explore their world more fully. Session includes an overview of where environmental education has been and where it is headed with implications for trail planning. Our hope is to generate fresh ideas that will get more children off couches and into nature.
