Friday's Faces from the Past: TAMU RPTS Stories - AIN, April 6-9, 1977

Here are more pages from the scrapbook I kept in 1976-1977 as the Reporter-Historian of the Texas A&M University Recreation and Parks Club, being posted here in anticipation of the 50th anniversary of the Recreation, Park, and Tourism Sciences Department.

These images are of and from the pages about the 1977 National Workshop of the Association of Interpretive Naturalists, or AIN (now the National Association for Interpretation).   Unlike the Recreation Management Institute (RMI) held just a few weeks earlier, the Recreation and Parks Club was not responsible for keeping AIN running, but many students helped out anyway in the "Nerve Center,", and participated in social events and sessions, some of which were interactive.
