NPS Interpretive Waysides

BACKGROUND:
The National Park Service (NPS), through its Harpers Ferry Design Center, interprets natural, historical, cultural, and recreational resources at sites throughout the United States. We are among a small group of consultants selected to provide planning, design, and fabrication services for the NPS since 2010.

SCOPE:
For each project, we conduct a site visit, research and develop text and layouts, acquire images, original illustrations, and artwork, and manage fabricators to produce effective wayside exhibits. Our waysides are thoughtfully designed to communicate messages quickly and creatively to all audiences.

OUTCOMES:
To date, we have created more than 200 wayside exhibit panels for 13 national parks across the country. Our waysides have covered a variety of cultural and natural history topics such as Civil War battlefields, threatened forest species, wilderness conservation, and local communities.
