We partnered with the Oconee River Land Trust to create an exciting digital resource to help teach young students about land conservation. After the ORLT acquired a heavily-wooded property across from the Bernie-Harris-Lyons Middle School, this seemed like the perfect opportunity to make our vision a reality.
This property, known as the Tallassee Forest, contains a diverse array of plants and animals that are important to the Athens ecosystem. But with over 217,800 square feet and no marked trails, the ORLT was concerned with how to safely guide students through the forest to find these interesting species.
That's where we come in.
We wanted to design something that would easily aid students in locating, documenting, and revisiting pinned points within the forest. Thus, the Tallassee Tour was born.
