WOT Interpretive Sign Workshop Series Next Week
Every two years, the Wyoming Office of Tourism (WOT) receives $400,000 to fund signage projects along Wyoming’s highways. The purpose of this grant program is to nurture Wyoming’s tourism industry by creating more visitor friendly and accessible destinations for travelers.
In preparation for this upcoming funding cycle, the WOT has partnered with the U.S. Forest Service, State Parks and Cultural Resources and the Wyoming Department of Transportation to host a series of workshops on the basics of developing interpretive signs. Participants will learn to develop interpretive text and learn about standard design guidelines, fabrication methods, and installation requirements. “These workshops are a great way for potential applicants to get additional information that will benefit their projects and gain some inside tips on how to complete their grant applications,” says Kristin Phipps, Industry Services Sr. Specialist for WOT. To date, nearly 30 interpretive sign projects have been funded as a result of this workshop series.
These full day workshops will be held from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. in Casper on April 17, and Laramie on April 18. The registration fee is $25 per person and includes all workshop materials and lunch.
