TMNTuesday – Connecting All Texans to Conservation Through Meaningful, Engaging Interpretation
August 9, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Engaging Texans of all ages through education and outreach is one of the core tenants of the Texas Master Naturalist program. Delivering programs that are meaningful, accurate, educational, and yes, fun, requires a fundamental understanding of effective communication through interpretive techniques and approaches that lead to conservation action. It is not enough to simply fill minds with facts, or assume our engagement with nature will or should be the same as everyone else’s. Effective interpretation must address not only the resource and topic at hand, but also the audience, recognizing that everyone arrives with unique connections to, experiences with and understanding of, the natural world. Programs that invite all audiences to engage are critical to our success in expanding conservation efforts. This presentation will build upon your existing understanding of interpretation and provide practical and meaningful tips for effective communication with audiences of all ages and backgrounds to help your chapter move toward more inclusive community-wide engagement.
