More than just a “Cell Phone Reception” Area

I have met people who think environmental communication is simply about signs directing people through natural landscapes. I suppose it could be construed that way, but of course there is so much more to it than that.

The picture in the header of this blog is one I took while bicycling in the Adirondacks last Fall. We were on this dirt road/track (the “Speculator Loop”) and came to a kind of cross-roads that had this sign posted. I thought it all sort of captured the spirit of what this blog is trying to do, namely exploring the intersections between Nature, environmental affairs, and communication. A sign at an intersection in the woods indicating the ability to use a ubiquitous communication technology…how odd is that? Anyway, tell us what you think environmental communication is all about.
