OPRD Staff Providing Interpretive Information to Public  

The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department Interpretive Coordinator works with Managers and Rangers throughout the state in creating interpretive plans for all of the parks.
An interpretive plan is an assessment of the significant resources and major stories of each park, with guidelines for the best way to communicate those stories to the public.
The plans include goals and objectives for messages to be communicated for each park, themes that articulate the messages, and guidelines for media development such as panels, brochures, programs, or other methods of communication. The goal of interpretive services is to help visitors enjoy and understand the parks, and to encourage each visitor to become a steward of the parks in their own way.
