Artwork for signs at Bowman Park, near Crystal Brook, South Australia. The park is becoming more popular, especially with RV travellers. The signs aim to alert campers to environmental issues: controlling pets, avoiding the spreading weeds, and in particular, discourage the gathering wood for campfires. Trees, logs and fallen branches are habitat for lizards, birds and insects.  Areas in the park are being left bare from the camp fire wood gathering.
