Shangri La Botanical Gardens
Directing and educating visitors at a historic conservation resource.
Shangri La Botanical Gardens & Nature Center includes 200 acres of cypress/tupelo swamp as well as the historic Shangri La Gardens, providing hands-on conservation learning opportunities for children and adults. fd2s developed a graphic identity for the restoration of the facility, and then designed and documented an environmental graphics program that helps visitors to navigate the site, and identifies facilities such as an outdoor education center, classroom pavilions, and bird viewing blinds.
fd2s also worked with the project’s exhibit specialist to create interpretive displays that educate visitors about features such as the wetland water purification system that is designed to restore water nutrient balance in the property’s Heronry Lake, which is home to as many as 5,000 birds.
