The National Association for Interpretation is celebrating their 30th anniversary this year! Over the course of 2018, they will be recognizing 30 "shining stars" in the field of interpretation, from each of NAI's 10 geographical regions. NAI is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) professional association for those involved in the interpretation of natural and cultural heritage resources in setting such as parks, zoos, museums, nature centers, aquaria, botanical gardens, and historical sites. Founded in 1988 by merging two existing organizations (the Association of Interpretive Naturalists and the Western Interpreters Association), NAI's national headquarters is located in Fort Collins, Colorado.

WILD Boulder - a collaborative program between The WILD Foundation, the City of Boulder, and Boulder County - recently hosted a 4-day "bioblitz" as part of the 2018 City Nature Challenge. Throughout the event, local residents were encouraged to participate in "citizen science" by documenting nature and uploading their observations to the iNaturalist application. In four days, Boulder's citizen scientists identified hundreds of different species, including 519 plants, 82 insects, 93 birds and 23 mammals.
