The Black Swamp Conservancy needed a high resolution map of the original boundaries of The Great Black Swamp area. They wanted a hand-drawn illustration that included features of the area, some labeling of bodies of waters and towns along with a few illustrations of wild life from the past and present. I took all of these requirements and illustrated an ink drawing of the area.
At 346 acres, Forrest Woods Nature Preserve is Black Swamp Conservancy’s largest owned nature preserve and is located in Paulding County near Cecil, Ohio. The Conservancy received grant funding to restore approximately 60 acres of existing agricultural fields to forested wetlands. This area is a strategic location for wetland restoration due to its proximity to the confluence of the Marie DeLarme Creek and the Maumee River. I worked with Black Swamp Conservancy to illustrate and design two 16″ x 20″ interpretive signs to be installed on the property to inform the visitors of the restoration efforts and to give a futuristic illustration of what the site will look like in 10 years. These signs are currently being installed. You can learn more about this project at the following link: www.blackswamp.org/forrestwoodsrestoration
