Making conservation come alive can mean discovering the natural world through a neighborhood scavenger hunt or researching the perspectives of an industry group for a role-play. Techniques in this chapter, such as hands-on activities, field trips, and backcountry skills, immerse 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. Conservation educators can combine these techniques, such as the use of a role-play to teach backcountry skills. Most of the techniques in this chapter involve an element of fun, from a field trip exploring a wetland to a storytelling session on forests. This chapter contains 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.
