How this cause brings people in the community together
There would be a group of diverse community volunteers who would participate in the design of the signs. This would include butterfly and bird experts, local primary and secondary school children, a range of park visitors, including some with special educational needs, and a co-ordinator. The impact of the signs would be measured by visitors' experience and satisfaction surveys.
