This project’s design drew inspiration from the community it serves and the people that serve it—featuring touchscreen media programs that highlight the Refuge’s volunteers, a dimensional map of Philadelphia, incorporating the city’s skyline into design elements, and numerous interactive exhibits to tell the story of America’s First Urban Wildlife Refuge. 

Exhibits honored the unique relationship between nature and the sprawling metropolis visible from the Refuge, epitomized by the 12-foot-tall Great Blue Heron sculpture made of recyclable materials often found littered in the marsh—serving as a reminder that humans and wildlife are interconnected.
