Combining education and nature
An important part of our park and trail projects is the interpretive signage and exhibits designed exclusively for each location, this helps to create a narrative that acts to generate a positive visitor experience. These displays are an important part of creating a theme, a sense of place, and challenging visitor’s imaginations, while presenting unique perspectives on the location’s cultural and natural history.

Angeles National Forest Interpretive Signage Project
Amigos de los Rios – Emerald Necklace Group has been given the opportunity to develop interpretive signage for the Angeles National Forest (ANF) by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) and the U.S.D.A. Forest Service. The interpretive signage we create is providing information to forest visitors; regional location, access points, trail directions, points of interest, cultural and historical information, as well as plant and animal life education.
Our Interpretive Signage project is part of a larger strategy: The Angeles National Forest Copper, Ranch and Sayre Fire Restortion Strategy. This restoration strategy serves as the guiding document to aid the ANF and its partners in focusing, and ultimately implementing, projects that advance post-fire restoration in an ecologically meaningful and measurable way. The Restoration Strategy outlines the goals and objectives of the ANF for the fire restoration work, and highlights potential actions toward reaching those goals. The signage AMIGOS/Emerald Necklace Group is developing will help ANF meet these goals.
