An independent study project report by The McLean Contributionship Endowed Education Intern (2016-2017)


The natural areas at Morris Arboretum are one section of the gardens that have a strong need for new and updated interpretation. The existing panels in the wetland were outdated and weathered, while a newly-installed deer fence in Penn’s Woods required directional signage. My project was to fill both of these needs, which I accomplished through collaboration with the interpretation team and other key stakeholders. With the assistance of the interpretation team, we developed new content. A graphic designer helped us to design five beautiful new panels for the wetland, while I designed a simple sign for the deer fence. This additional interpretation in the natural areas has high educational value and will enhance visitors’ understanding and appreciation for the natural areas.
