... connecting landscape settings, signage and maps with a digital future
Nature tourism invites people to explore an outdoor area and experience first hand its natural and cultural heritage values. Nature tourism's promise is not just the enjoyment of open air activity, but rather the chance to connect with and appreciate a place's underlying heritage values.
Nature Tourism Services was established in 1998 by IAN CHARLES and MARIANNE WALSH to help land managers deliver on this promise of safe, meaningful and enriching travel to heritage places.
We offer a unique suite of integrated nature tourism communication products. These include strategic interpretive planning, interpretive landscape design solutions, interpretation signage, interpretive mapping and tourism web-apps specifically developed to enhance the functionality of onsite interpretation signs.
