For those of you interested in becoming an interpretive naturalist, we strongly encourage you to to take the Nature Interpretation course offered by Alan Watson (our past director). This course can be taken in class or as a distant education course. Click on the link below for more details.

An exploration of communication and experiential learning theories and their application to natural history interpretation and environmental education program design.
