This week will be spent working with FORM Media, as a sub-contractor, providing interpretive planning consultation services to develop and deliver Mi'kmaq Interpretive Programming in Nova Scotia Provincial Parks. I really enjoy working in Nova Scotia, and this project working with First Nations is especially interesting. Likewise, FORM Media is a very well respected Canadian interpretation planning firm and I look forward to working with them.

Some of the pictures from Bonnet Carre Spillway this week. The beauty is some of the great natural areas and some awsome wildflowers. The Beast is the sand and clay mining going on at other parts of the spillway drainage basin. All stories to be told via our auto tour and cell phone interpretation.
Back in New Orleans and working on the interpretive media for the Corps of Engineers Bonnet Carre Spillway project. This week Matt Kaser, our outstanding designer, will be reveiwing the interpretive panel designs for the project. We will also be working on the self-guiding auto tour, doing digital interviews with staff for the audio auto tour and for cell phone interpretation about sites in and around the Bonnet Carre project. The weather here is great, with the afternoon temps. being around 80 degrees.

Back from Korea and participation in the International Symposium on the development of the Arboretum project. We finished the first phast of the interprtive master plan, which we presented. That included the main interpretive theme, policies, and storyline as well as exterior exhibits and demonstrations planning. We hope to begin phase II (planning and writing of the media we planned including self-guiding walking tours both printed and audio, visitor center exhibits, and more) in the next few months. This week is a week in the office writing label copy for our New Orleans project - Bonnet Carrie Spillway - and a few other odds and ends. A pic from the seminar. Till later... jv.
