The new and long-awaited Interpretive Signs have been installed in the Botanical Gardens. The four, full color laminated signs give information on the geological context of the Gardens, the Crevice Rock Garden, the flora and fauna of the river setting and the native plants endemic to the Gardens. The signs are placed in different locations throughout the Gardens so visitors can enjoy them as they stroll throughout the beds.
This project was made possible through funding from the Union Pacific Foundation, Shasta Regional Community Foundation, the Don and Florence Bottega family and the many private donors to the Botanical Gardens. This commitment to the mission of the Dunsmuir Botanical Gardens, to provide horticultural education to the members of the Dunsmuir Community and the people who visit here, is greatly appreciated.
The Gardens’ Board of Directors also wishes to thank Dunsmuir Recreation and Parks Board members, Jerry Totten and Brian Wilson, for installing the signs, Bowen Saunders who worked so hard digging the eight post holes, Linda Price of LP Designs for her design and layout of the signs, the experts in their fields who contributed the specific information for the individual signs and Gardens’ Horticulturalist, Candace Miller.
