Interpretive design is for all those who assist visitors in getting to know their public jewels - parks and preserves, gardens and galleries, museums and monuments - in short, leisure sites from aquaria to zoos, and who aim to enrich those visitors' experience in meaningful and memorable ways. In these pages you will find: 15 developmental steps for structuring the dance of experience; practical exercises for individuals or groups; key password questions interpretive designers use daily; design challenges based on actual natural and cultural sites; useful pointers and tools for leaders and guides everywhere. If you are an interpreter, ranger, guide, docent, tour leader, informal educator, or designer for leisure sites with a mission, you cannot afford to miss this important new perspective on your work. This book will change what you do.
