Journal of Geography, v116 n3 p119-126 2017
Guided educational tours are a major activity within informal education. This article examines the potential for tour guides of a largely historical tour of St. Helena Island, Michigan, to include physical geography within the tour. Using field data and interview methods, the researchers identified the physical features of the island that could be included based on evidence provided by the tour guides.
