Who are NAI Members?

Faces of NAI: Maureen Stine, CHI

If you help visitors learn about a place that’s important to you, you’re an interpreter!

Interpreters connect visitors to important natural, cultural, and historical resources at parks, nature centers, historical sites, aquariums, zoos, and anywhere that people come to learn about places. NAI defines interpretation as "a purposeful approach to communication that facilitates meaningful, relevant, and inclusive experiences that deepen understanding, broaden perspectives, and inspire engagement with the world around us."
