About Region 9

National Association for Interpretation – Region 9

From the sagebrush and silver mines of Nevada to the towering redwoods of the California coast; from the snow-capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada to the white-sand beaches of Hawaii, the Sierra Pacific Region offers many services and benefits to help our members become more closely associated with each other, and to improve themselves professionally.

Interpretation is a mission-based communication process that forges emotional and intellectual connections between the interests of the audience and the meanings inherent in the resource.

Our mission is to inspire leadership and excellence to advance natural and cultural interpretation as a profession. NAI Region 9 complements this mission by providing regional services and opportunities for a diverse membership from Northern Nevada and Northern California to Hawaii and the Pacific Islands.
