Eppley’s Online Interpretation Training Courses Discounted

As spring arrives, the public usually begins to access parks, outdoor recreation areas, and protected areas. We know that many more Americans took to the Great Outdoors starting in 2020 resulting in a record number of visits, 168.1 million participants according to the Outdoor Industry Association, in 2022. This participation is anticipated to increase in 2023 and includes significant increases among diverse populations with higher levels of outings per participant. 55% of the US population ages 6 and older now access our shared outdoor resources with over 25% indicating they plan to increase access to the outdoors.

Part of outdoor experiences are learning based. The outdoor experience provides a platform for participants to learn new information and gain new perspectives. Often these experiences, sometimes called ‘making meaning together’ are facilitated by interpreters at the outdoor recreation place, park or protected area. Supporting effective interpretation has always been a priority at the Eppley Center for Parks and Public Lands.
