Interpretive trails

Schermafbeelding 2015-02-22 om 09.02.28“Most trails are designed just to get the visitor from Point A to Point B. Interpretive trails are designed to help the visitor laugh, cry, smile, discover, understand and explore along the way.”

Interpretive trails – both outdoor and indoor – can provide visitors with a unique immersion experience in viewing, discovering and experiencing the locations they’re visiting, helping them re-connect with a natural or cultural environment in a personal way.

For those involved in learning, engagement, interpretation, planning, consultancy, landscape architecture, and training – and those charged with developing interpretive trails who have no specific training in interpretive services themselves, The Interpretive Trails Book will become an indispensable and easy-to-follow resource to help create trails that engage, motivate and inspire your visitors.
The author, Prof. John Veverka, is one of the world’s leading experts on heritage interpretation and in demand as a consultant, teacher and speaker on interpretation throughout the world. His clients have included the Eden Project, National Museum Wales, US National Park Service, Natural England, Nova Scotia Museums, Santa Fe de Antioquia (Columbia), and the Texas Historical Commission.
