Botanic gardens lead the way for environmental education in Mexico
Botanic Gardens in Mexico join in with environmental educational centres
Botanic garden education went down a storm at the 10th National Meeting of Environmental Education Centres
|Educators from all over Mexico took part in workshops and lectures|
Orlik Gomez-Garcia, manager of the Francisco Javier Clavijero Botanic Garden, presented a workshop on interpretation, illustrating the educational activities that BGCI member gardens use to communicate with their visitors. Topics included how to design a pathway, define a theme, signage, and writing interpretational text. The workshop was enthusiastically received by 35 participants. Orlik reported that a workshop on playing games with children and teenagers was particularly useful for his work.
