My theme-based approach rests on the belief that interpretation should inform, educate, provoke and involve visitors, giving them not only a more enjoyable experience, but also a greater understanding of how a site fits into the big picture. I start with “Who cares?” to identify audiences, and continue with “So what?” by relating information to their lives and concerns. Finally, I incorporate “What’s next?” to give visitors concrete actions to help them move from awareness to a real sense of stewardship for our natural and cultural resources.About Me
