Students Create Podcasts For Green Earth Organization

April 30, 2009

Recently, Dr. Erin Seekamp's FOR 423 course has been developing interpretive podcasts ("pocket ranger tours") as service learning projects. In 2008, podcasts were developed for three different areas at Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge. In 2009, five podcasts were developed for Green Earth, Inc., a nongovernment organization devoted to preserving green space around Carbondale, IL. The intention of these self-guided podcasts is to encourage visitation by interpreting local natural and heritage resources.
