Like the clean blanket of snow out my window, this year feels like a fresh start: thrilling, daunting and filled with potential. If a new year can feel like a fresh start, what does a new century feel like? Starting our centennial year, I feel the promise and the power our places hold to make a difference in our increasingly complex and demanding world. How do we do that? Through Interpretation, of course!
Not only are we starting a new year and a new century in the National Park Service, but today the Interpretive Development Program (IDP) launches its next generation. Born out of an "Interpretive (R)evolution" 20 years ago, the IDP's next iteration asks for your active engagement to prepare us for who we can be in our second century. Check out some of the offerings and askings this coming quarter.
