Interpretive Services and Outreach
Interpretation is the most important management and public relations tool we have. Any form of communication that we may have with visitors usually involves two basic communication styles. We present material we want the visitor to know in an informational style or in an interpretive style. The difference between the two styles is not what we present but how we present it. Information style simply dispenses the facts the way a field guide lists and describes species. But the interpretive style reveals a story or larger message, relying on Freeman Tilden's Principles to help the visitor relate to that message.
