(MCCORMICK’S CREEK) – The Department of Natural Resources Interpretive Training: The Basics and Beyond, will be held May 13-16 at McCormick’s Creek State Park.
This training is designed for seasonal naturalists, full-time interpreters and other outdoor educators, managers and site administrators who supervise and evaluate interpreters and volunteers who present programs and staff nature centers, interpretive centers, zoos, and museums.
There is also an option for completing the National Association of Interpretation (NAI) Certified Interpretive Guide program (for more information on CIG training, please visit: www.interpnet.com and click on “Certification and Training”)
This is a very intensive, educating and hands-on training. During the time, you will get to watch and learn from the best Indiana State Park Naturalists and network with naturalists from around the state. Training includes interpretive techniques, natural and cultural history learning opportunities, understanding of the interpreter’s role as a member of a site team and inspiring interpreters to achieve excellence in their programs.
The IMN council is offering two scholarships to any certified IMN interested in going and being immersed in the art of Interpretation.
