Signs at public gathering places (Olcott
Harbor, Fisherman’s Park, and Royalton Ravine Conservation Education Park) were
installed in the fall of 2009. The signs were 4’x 3’ and included a:
• Map of the creek and its entire watershed with a “You are Here” point of reference;
• Brief explanation of where the water comes from and where it goes,
• Educational message(s) with suggestions for ways to help protect and restore waterways and water quality, and
• Prominent display of the web address for more information.
The signs are mounted on a alumilite board. All graphics were 3M over-laminated for protection. This means if the signs are “tagged” with graffiti, they can be cleaned with relative ease. Town of the signs places (Fisherman’s Park, and Royalton Ravine Conservation Education Park) were erected between 2x4’s which were covered and capped with a PVC vinyl. The sign place in Olcott Harbor was secured to a wall section of the public bathroom. The sign was placed immediately next to the future site of an invasive species boat wash that will be constructed in 2009. A brochure holder was also added to two of the signs (Fisherman’s Park, and Royalton Ravine Conservation Education Park) and can hold a variety of education/outreach material
