“Thank you to the team at Nebulo who did the design of the board, totem pole and plaques at Cromer’s Wood viewing platform. We have had some lovely comments from children and adults alike about it and it has brought the area more alive for those that take the time to stop, look and listen to what is around them” Martin Keelor – Project Officer
Nebulo was pleased to be entrusted with the development of interpretation features for the woodland pond at Cromer’s Wood in North Kent. Working as we did to a fixed budget given to us by by Kent Wildlife Trust, we aimed to produce a robust outcome that largely used high quality sustainable materials. After gathering a wildlife list from the Trust, we set to illustrating the species that live in and around the pond. Our idea was to create engraved silhouettes of animals and plants for children to discover that were fixed to the decking balustrade and on the swing-out arms of a totem. These little silhouettes match up with the shapes of the detailed illustrations on an interpretation panel. Kids find a shape and then hunt out the accompanying picture, or if very young be helped by a parent. Unusual facts about the species accompany the illustrations such as… The dormouse who was brought to England by the Romans, who enjoyed eating them for dessert!
