Making conservation come alive can mean discovering the natural world around us through a neighborhood scavenger hunt or researching the perspectives of an industry group for a role-play. Many of the techniques in this chapter emphasize the experiential approach to conservation education, such as hands-on activities, field trips, and wilderness skills. The aim of these techniques is to immerse the participants in exploring the outdoors or an environmental concept. Other techniques bring conservation alive through a minds-on approach, such as storytelling, games, case studies, role-playing, and contests. Planning these techniques involves both research and logistics. This chapter provides helpful hints for implementation, including tips for engaging an audience in a story or developing a role-play. Every technique engages the audience in learning through direct experience.

Keywords:   case study, contests, field trips, hands-on activities, games, role-playing, storytelling, wilderness skills
