My Interpretive Sign Is Up!

My interpretive sign showing how plants and animals use Cold Creek in both wet and dry seasons is up at the reserve!


It is posted at a small creek overlook along the Homestead Trail.  I developed the sign to highlight how plants and animals make use of a seasonal stream in both wet and dry times of year.  To illustrate the concept, I selected a set of organisms that represent a wide variety of strategies for coping with fluctuations in water availability in different seasons.  Given a two-color design constraint, I used the colors to help emphasize the species and the changes in their environment.

Here is the sign alone:
