Subject:           The Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) National Lead for Interpretation
                                                                                                                 DD:  08/31/2010        
 
On behalf of the Division of Education, Interpretation, and Partnerships, I would like to introduce Brianna Candelaria, the BLM’s new National Lead for Interpretation.  Brianna joins the Washington Office from Utah’s Dinosaur National Monument, where she was the Assistant Chief of Interpretation.  Her prior experience also includes interpretive positions at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, several national parks, the National Park Service’s Harpers Ferry Interpretive Design Center, and the BLM’s National Historic Oregon Trail Interpretive Center.
 
In the coming months, Brianna will contact both State and Field Office interpretive staff to discuss program needs and suggested enhancements.  This preliminary information will be used to begin to build a strategic plan for interpretation that addresses: 
·        training for staff
·        new technologies for delivery of interpretive materials and programs
·        partnerships
·        communication with State and Field Office staffs

·        approaches for making interpretation a dynamic, integral part of BLM visitor services

First steps will include updating the existing list of BLM State interpretive leads and building an accurate, accessible, database.  Toward that end, I would appreciate your responding to this message with the name of the person who is the primary contact for the interpretive program in your state.  Please ask that person to contact Brianna by August 31st, so she may provide him/her with the information to access the database. 

If you or your staff have any questions, Brianna’s contact information is as follows:

Phone: 202-912-7583
Fax:     202-912-7192
 
Thank you for your assistance.  Brianna and I look forward to working with your interpretive staff.
