Many managers are faced with determining where to focus their resources and management efforts to protect a resource while providing for visitor needs. Pandion has special expertise balancing visitor use and ecological needs in natural areas. We plan recreation areas that take into consideration sensitive natural resources, diverse recreation needs, budget restrictions, facility needs, and the goals and objectives of the site.
Our team has helped land managers take seemingly large recreation issues and boil them down into tangible, approachable tasks. We have worked with managers to determine the types, locations, and levels of recreation for their sites. In addition, we have helped managers create resource monitoring plans that show them when and if recreation impacts are becoming too much.
Visitor Use Management
Go beyond fences and signs to create innovative ways to better manage visitor use at your site. We help you understand who your visitors are, why they come, and what they are looking for from their experiences (using surveys, interviews, focus groups, behavioral observations, and other proven methods). We analyze this information and work with you to apply it to visitor management at your site.
More than just text on a sign or brochure, interpretation tells a site’s story and creates the opportunity for a connection between the visitor and the resource. We create effective interpretive themes, messages, content, online and print materials, kiosks, and exhibits.
From individual kiosks to entire exhibit installations, our creative interpretive writers present your ideas in a targeted, effective manner. To give life to your ideas, we partner with excellent graphic and exhibit designers.
