March 10-12 at Monte Toyon in Aptos, CA
SAVE THE DATE! Our spring workshop for the Sierra Pacific Region will be held in Aptos, CA at Monte Toyon Camp & Retreat Center on March 10 – 12. Set amongst the towering redwoods & beautiful rhododendrons a short distance from Seacliff State Beach, it is a perfect location to resume our in-person workshop.
Our annual 3-day event will kick off with a day of field trips around the local area, evening festivities that will include campfires, socializing and of course, region awards to recognize the outstanding work our interpretive colleagues have done throughout the past year.
Invigorating, innovative & inspiring presentations revolving around the art of interpretation will be presented on Saturday & Sunday.
Although we hope to see all of you in person, we know that to reach as many of you as possible, virtual presentations are the new norm. All the presentations at the workshop will be live & in-person but this year we are also proposing to have the presentations recorded so that there will be a virtual component to this workshop for those of you to enjoy at home after the event. A new era of engaging interpretation has begun!
Be on the lookout for information about workshop scholarships, how to nominate fellow interpreters for our Sierra Pacific Awards Program, and when to submit an application to present at the workshop. Check here for more information!
We are very excited to welcome all of you back to this very beautiful location and to see all of your smiling faces – so set aside March 10 – 12, 2023 for a weekend of reconnecting with old friends and making new connections.
Your 2023 Workshop Co-Chairs,
