Interpretive Sign for
Oyster Reef Project
A hearty thanks to the Chesapeake Bay Trust for funding the design and manufacture of this exciting sign, which was installed last week at the college waterfront. And hats off to Dan Branigan and the college staff who endured northwest winds and temperatures in the twenties to get the sign installed promptly. It is only through the generous support of our partners and members that exciting work like this continues throughout the year.
The signage project was organized and led by Allison Rugila, SMRWA Program Director. The design by Stephanie Sobchak Graphic Designs was based on Allison's content and utilizing several of the Association's photgraphs from actual projects and field trips at the reef.
