Woodland interpretive signage

A threatened Box-gum ecosystem was in need of interpretive signage to encourage installation of new native habitats (nesting boxes).

Ecocreative has worked with local government organisations in central New South Wales for a number of years. In our role delivering design and communications services for their Inspiring and Integrating Change program (a major sustainability engagement and delivery project) we have been contracted to develop sustainability publications (including plans), facilitate community consultation and create interpretive signage.

We were approached by the City of Orange in 2011 to create a trail-head and marker-point signage for newly constructed stormwater wetlands in central Orange. Messages were focused on residents and visitors that interpreted the ecological, water management and lifestyle features for four wetland trails.

Alongside this project, we were commissioned to create signage that interpreted Box-gum grassy woodlands and their fauna with the objective of encouraging the preservation of native trees (and installation of nesting boxes) in suburban and rural gardens.
