I was lead designer and digital illustrator for an interpretive program for Watson Woods Riparian Preserve in Prescott, Arizona. Spread along a trail loop, five interpretive signs and ten plant identification tags call visitor attention to the Preserve's unique ecological setting, restoration work, and the site's history. A tri-fold brochure attracts and orients visitors to the Preserve. The eye-catching signs combine hand illustrations, digital illustrations, and photographs with a bold color palette. Signs were created while at The Watershed Company.

Visitors learn about the ecology of the cottonwood forest that grows along Granite Creek. A digital illustration explains how cottonwoods can reproduce asexually through a process called fragmentation.
