Interpretive Resource Programs interpret and translate information about subject matter into meaningful and purposeful learning experiences. Relationships with the natural world are communicated through experience with objects, artifacts, sites, exhibits and people. Interpretive programs provoke audience response, relate issues in the resource, and reveal meaning.
