Interpretation engages site visitors; and encourages them to explore, connect and take action.
Excellent interpretation is an essential component of a positive visitor experience. Interpretation brings alive the nature, history and culture of a place. When visitors are engaged, they gain a greater appreciation for the resources. Interpretation begins with thoughtful planning and careful consideration of what site managers want visitors to know, feel and do.
GWC’s team of writers and designers craft messages, select images, and format thought-provoking, informative exhibits.
