Lac du Flambeau Stormwater Improvement and Restoration Interpretive Signage

Lac du Flambeau Tribal Natural Resource Department (
Lac Du Flambeau, WI

Two interpretive signs draw visitors’ attention to stormwater improvement and restoration projects at the Lac du Flambeau Tribal Natural Resource Department in Lac Du Flambeau, WI, near Lake Superior. The new panels help the tribes increase environmental awareness by park users and highlight the connection between the tribe and the land. One sign uses historical and modern photographs to portray the Ojibwa tribes continuing and evolving relationship with the local ecosystem. Native plant descriptions include traditional uses. Another panel explains the water quality and habitat benefits of a rain garden. Finally, an instructive sign asks boaters to drain water into a bioswale rather than the lake.
