Sue is a Certified Interpretive Trainer for the National Association for Interpretation. She has been involved with teaching workshops for guides who have a desire to incorporate NAI’s interpretive methods. One of Sue’s interests is studying prairie insects. She, with two coworkers, published a study of prairie pollinators in the Chicago Wilderness journal.
