Welcome to NAI’s Northwest Region!

This is Your Region…

The National Association for Interpretation (NAI) is dedicated to advancing the profession of heritage interpretation. We encompass this message by providing an outlet for career development and inspiring leadership and excellence within the Northwest Region. This includes Alaska, Yukon, Alberta, British Columbia, Idaho, Washington and Oregon. Our region provides interpretive services from coast to forest to sagebrush shrub-steppe. From the mountains to the valleys and the winding rivers between. We represent diverse cultures, histories and experiences- and we all have something in common.

We are interpreters just like you, and we share the same goals. To inspire, make meaningful connections, foster a sense of stewardship for our wild and historic places and a passion to protect and conserve. To offer outlets for exploration, evoke emotion, encourage thinking, and instill a sense of wonder and belonging within our audiences. We are here for you, for the people, and for the land with its vast natural and cultural resources. We each have a unique story to share, and networking with like-minded individuals can help us to succeed as we each carry out the legacies we believe in.

Welcome to Northwest Region- we’re glad you’re here!
