INT 2006 - Capstone Research/Field Experience
The capstone project is designed to show a comprehensive mastery and application of the concepts and practices presented in the program. The project is designed to meet the requirements and allow students to use their assignment for submission when applying for NAI Heritage Interpreter Certification. The capstone is broken into three sections: planning, interpretation, and presentation. Each section is designed to help the student with the next phase of the project.
The capstone requires experience within an organization that utilizes naturalist interpretation. This can be through full or part time employment or an internship/co-op/special field experience, an investigation of a special topic and/or development of a project, directed readings/study or a research project for an organization. In meeting this requirement, it will be important for students to be able to demonstrate they are getting an “integrated” field experience in natural resources and environmental education.
