Evaluating Visitors' Reactions to Interpretation in Australian National Parks.
Beckman, Elizabeth A.
Journal of Interpretation Research, v4 n1 p5-19 Win 1999
Evaluations of visitors' reactions to interpretation in Australian national parks found that guided activities provided more immediate responses to visitors' questions on Aboriginal culture than on-site signs; a well-designed interpretive mural mitigated people's disappointment at visiting wetlands when no birds were present; and ranger-guided events indirectly influenced visitors' environmental knowledge and attitudes.
