STEPS has asked Auckland Council for updates to the interpretive signs on the Roy Clements treeway, and 7 signs are now in the Albert Eden Local Board budget for July 2016-June 2017.
We are modifying existing signs, updating the text / photos and relocating some; adding also a map. One particular concern we have is in relation to the strength and nature of the materials and their accessibility / location. Since vandalism (tagging) remains an issue AC cleans them regularly. AC will soon appoint a technical designer to assist.
STEPS has drafted text and started collecting photos old and new. Some of the main topics we are working with are:
- Mount Albert Grammar School and Roy Clements
- Community restoration planting
- Health of waterways
- Springs and aquifers
We also plan the use of QR codes for more detail, by placing on each sign a QR code which refers to a particular web page. People use their mobiles to link for further information. – eg species list for each different location. Over time we could include birds & fish as well as plants.
If you have photos or ideas please contact us through our web site.
