Fort Sheridan Nature Preserve
Ft. Sheridan, IL
DescriptionWhen is a big WOW! exhibit of the utmost importance? When your client knows their visitors and wants to create an unrivaled interpretive experience for them. Throughout the design process, Fort Sheridan insisted on a super-sized red-tailed hawk’s nest that would double as an outdoor classroom. We mentioned that they could get a lot of additional exhibits for the cost of this one, but the client remained firm. The client was right. The importance of the big WOW prevailed and attendance increased dramatically. Other exciting trailside exhibits that are must see include: about 40 interpretive signs, a refurbished anti-aircraft gun with bunker, a bird watching station, and within the nest previously mentioned, an interactive enlarged hawk’s head fitted with binocular power. Go create a big Wow! for your visitors.
