A review of thousands of papers - through an extensive search of multiple education, environmental, resource, and resource management journals and journal databases - identified studies of adult outreach and education that could claim to identify best education practices for specific audiences.
We undertook this study because while many environmental education research papers recommend education practices, few of these papers focus on adult audiences, and few identify education practices that are best for specific audience groups. Few resource management papers test specific education practices, relying instead on the admonition that good resource management needs to be accompanied by outreach to the public or to a target audience.
