Months of talking to museum visitors as we do strategic planning have shown that developing outdoor landscaping is one of the more popular future plans. People are excited to continue learning more about the local plants and animals, and understanding the amazing natural world around them.
But what form will that take? The possibilities are endless, but we know people are hoping for easy walking trails, desert art through the Rainforest Art Project, and interpretive signs over the next five years or so. All of these ideas have to start somewhere, and they are starting now!
|Meet our local Greater Roadrunner, the inspiration behind these test panels!|
|4 different ideas to start discussing outdoor signage|
|Should panels include identifying animal tracks?|
|Flip sign version one: open to discover what animal it's talking about|
|Flip sign version 2: see the animal before opening|
|Flip signs offer more space for info, when it it too much?|
The feedback we get on the current ideas will help as we work with graphic designers and exhibit builders in the future to create outdoor exhibits that meet as many visitor expectations and interests as possible.
