Interpretive Signs Coming to Reston’s Meadows

New interpretive signs could come to some of Reston’s 52 meadows next year.

Friends of Reston, a non profit organization, has received a grant from the Chesapeake Bay License plate Fund for the creation of new interpretive signs that provide information about measures to support the health of the Chesapeake Bay. The signs will include information about the environmental benefits of wildflowers and native grasses, reducing stormwater runoff and feeding wild life.

RA is seeking the approval of the Design Review Board to install the signs, which could be ready as early as March.

According to its website, Friends of Reston is a non profit organization established in 1999 to support RA’s work for charitable, education and scientific purposes.

    I hope the example shown is NOT the design the Friends of Reston go with. It’s not only poor general design, but it’s bad interpretive design – litter on the landscape. The illustrations are excellent; you need a pro to design good interpretive panels. Why would you hire some random person who hasn’t bothered to study design or interpretive concepts?
