This slide show contains plans for interpretive signs that will be installed at several trails and sites around the Limberlost, a wetlands area in Jay and Adams Counties. The purpose of the project is to inform the public about the natural and cultural history of the Limberlost as they explore the area. The signs draw connections between the importance of the Limberlost and the work of Gene Stratton-Porter, who extensively researched and wrote about this area.

Each sign contains facts about history and nature in the immediate area, as well as a corresponding quotation from one of Stratton-Porter’s books. The presentation also shows where some of the signs will be installed and how students in this seminar have helped restore a small piece of the wetlands. As funding for creation of the signs becomes available, Limberlost Swamp Remembered volunteers will install them at their designated locations.
