Visitor Center Program At a Glance Banner

At a Glance

    Interpretation is the most important management tool and the most powerful public relations device we have. Our visitor centers are an opportunity to not only provide information but to change attitudes and perceptions and enlist the visitors' help in protecting our natural resources.

    Visitor centers may range from large centers that cover regional issues to small project offices that provide information and brochures. Visitor centers are designed to stimulate interest and convey information. They are to enhance the public's understanding of the Corps, of the purpose and operation of the project, its archeological, historic, man-made, natural, and cultural features, and to develop public appreciation for the proper and safe use of project resources. They also aid project personnel in accomplishing management objectives and reduce overall project operation and maintenance costs.
