After the culmination of two and a half years of collaboration, design, and planning, San Bernardino NWR finally is starting to place interpretive panels on Black Draw Trail on the refuge. The project began in July of 2009 with a plan and a Statement of Work outlining that plan. The refuge ordered 23 interpretive panels, five 3ft by 5ft, ten 2ft by 3ft, and eight 9in by 12in. Signs cover topics from the historic to the present on the use of what is now the refuge. Installation of some of the signs began in October of last year on the historic Slaughter Ranch. The refuge works closely with the ranch on many projects and the ranch acts as a gateway to the refuge for many of the refuge’s visitors. Therefore, it was a natural partnership to complete some signs to be placed on the ranch. All signs that were installed on the ranch are bilingual, since many of the visitors are from Mexico. The signs provide for a much more enjoyable and informative experience for the public.
