Interpretation is a special form of communication that helps people understand, appreciate, and emotionally connect with the rich natural and cultural heritage preserved in parks.  It is the mission of interpretation in California State Parks to convey messages that initially help visitors value their experience, and ultimately will foster a conservation ethic and promote a dedicated park constituency.
