We just finished the first of two Interpretive Services Courses for the US Army
Corps of Engineers Rangers/Intepreters, here in Huntsville, AL. These are 4 day courses and we award 1.9 CEU credits for the participants. We will be repeating this course on Monday and complete this batch of training on Feb. 3rd. The course will be presented again in June.
JVA was also just awarded the contract to present the Advanced Interpretation Course, for COE Managers, Supervisors and Team Leaders. This course will be held in May in St. Louis, MO.
When I return to Michigan at the end of the week I only have a few days at home as Monhday I am off to Port Huron, MI to start the Interpretive Plan for our Lighthouse projet. It's good to be busy.
The photos are my class at the Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge - our field trip site -where they are working on developing interpretive panels for several different trails there.

Hi folks, Happy New Year. It looks like 2011 will be a busy one for JVA. We start two new projects this month noted in recent blogs. In addition, we have two training courses for the Corps of Engineers to teach at the end of January as well. We completed the Interpretive Plan for the NPS Abraham Lincoln Birthplace NHS, and the Civil War Lanadscape Museum Project in Georgia in November/December 2010. It's cold with snow here in Michigan today, so I thought a Spring scene from the Snowdonia NP Training Center in Wales would warm things up. I will be back there in May for the start of our 2011 UK training courses. Hope you all have a great New Year. jv
