We are looking at the use of QR Codes for self-guiding interpretation options. Here is the QR Code for my website. These codes can be scanned with a smart phone with a bar code/QR code reader, and be directed to client videos, web sites, articles, or anything else. I am looking at using these for some up coming projects. Lots of new projects on the horizon, just waiting for the official notices to proceed to post them. Enjoy July... JV

Our introductory interpretive training course included lots of hands on interpretive projects and experiences. The photos show teams working on interpretive panel designs for the Wheeler National Wildlife Reserve (our field trip host), and one of the creative interpretive panels on forest management (Who Cut One?)created by another team project. This introductory course will be offered again at least twice next year. Contat me if you're interested in having interpretive training for your organization. firstname.lastname@example.org

This past week was spent working the draft interpretive plan for the Brown Family Environmental Center in Ohio and preparing proposals for some new summer projects.
Sunday I'm off to Alabama for the Corps of Engineers 4-day Interpretive Services Course. The photo is from the earlier IS course this year - our field trip and planning practicum at the Wheeler NWF. My new books should be out this month too.
