Meeting the Moment:
Programming (or Interpretation) at the Family Campsite

Michelle Wilson & Alysa Adams
60 minutes
CE: 1.0
Date: August 10, 2021
Webinar Recording

The summer of 2020 offered new challenges for Interpretive staff across the country, as we each sought solutions to engage the public in meaningful ways. With Visitor Centers closed, guided walks and amphitheater style programs canceled, and limited personnel available to meet public needs, creative ingenuity and the enthusiasm to try something new became paramount. A pilot program was started, with staff offering personalized programs to individual family units at places like their campsite. Now, this successful model is being implemented again as we launch into a new summer. Come learn how two different state agencies customized programming to meet their visitor needs amidst COVID and be inspired by what you can do at your site!

Michelle Wilson is an Executive Officer II with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources working in the Conservation & Recreation Division. Since 2000 she has been assisting the State Parks, Forests and Preserves Bureau, coordinating the interpretive program and training full-time staff and seasonal interpreters in CIG. Outside of Interpretation, she develops the State's SCORP plan and facilitates teams across the DNR and state government in Continuous Improvement.


Alysa Adams is a Parks Interpretive Specialist 2 with Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission. Since 2013 she’s been sharing her passion for the natural world with campers and folks passing through, and her goofy enthusiasm is always appreciated by youngers and their parents alike. She is currently the Interim Deputy Director of NAI’s Northwest Region and is stationed at the Mount St. Helens Visitor Center.

Geoparks & Geofood: Interp. our Geoheritage thru Gastronomy
Carla Susan Goulart Martins Da Silva
60 minutes
CE: 1
Date: June 29, 2021
Webinar Recording

Is interpretation of geological heritage any different from other heritage interpretation? In this webinar, Carla Silva will discuss the philosophy behind the UNESCO Global Geoparks, linking education, heritage conservation and sustainable economy. She will give some examples of geointerpretation and introduce the concept of Geofood. Her goal is to give you an appetite for more “geo” in your interpretation!

Carla Silva is a divided person: between the Azores archipelago and Portugal mainland; between biology and geology; between doing and training others. She currently works for the Azores Governmental Services of Nature Conservation and Environmental Awareness, where, among several projects, she is a trainer for Azores Natural Parks Courses for Tourist Guides and provides workshops for school teachers. She is still hands-on as a guide at the UNESCO World Heritage Landscape of the Pico Island Vineyard Culture, and has been part of the educational team on the UNESCO Global Azores Geopark since the project began in 2012. Carla is also Interpret Europe’s Country Coordinator for Portugal.
