Award Description: Item No. 1: Conceptual Planning for Interpretive Exhibits and Fabrication/Installation of Selected Exhibits. 1. Provide a conceptual design for space planning and/or renovating for remaining undeveloped space in the SE LA Refuges Visitor Center. Design will assess suitability of either incorporating or removing existing stepped interior spaces as appropriate, visitor traffic patterns, and melding of new spaces with already-developed exhibit areas. Concept design should emphasize sensory, hands-on approaches to interpretation that make connections with all age groups. It will contrast with static, traditional flatwod and dioramas already developed in the front half of the visitor center space. Exhibit design and space planning should incorporate the overall theme proposed for the visitor center: 'National Wildlife Refuges are actively managed for the conservation of fish, wildlife and habitat. To include a site visit by company staff members to meet with refuge staff and review existing conditions and discuss possible new exhibit themes and program priorities. 2.
