Custom NatureWalk Entrance Panel
Vacker Sign can provide you with a custom entrance sign panel that serves to welcome your visitors and introduce them to your NatureWalk signs. It can be customized to include your agency logo and contact information, as well as those of any sponsors or grant funding sources. The panel might also include a trail or park map, park or trail rules, or the classic message – “Leave No Trace”. Custom entrance signs are available in 18×24 and 24×36. A National Park Service cantilever style exhibit can be outfitted with a cross bar for mounting a sponsor sign.
