Outdoor sign making

Commitment: Short term (less than 6 months)

Number of Positions Available: 1

Deadline: Jul 12, 2019


We are restoring a hiking trail along part of west Quebec's Dumoine River this summer. There is a lack of signage to direct people at the various trailheads. We are seeking a volunteer who is creative and willing to make about 10 signs that are weather resistant for the entry points and to highlight some key points of interest. We are open to ideas, but a simple sign on wood or other resistant material, dark brown with white lettering would be ideal. We can reimburse the cost of material. We would need the signs by July 28. The trail work is taking place the week of July 29. A list of signs will be provided, signs will be bilingual.
