In late June of 2011, the USFS sent a team to Pays Dogon in Mali to conduct site reconnaissance and meet with stakeholders to understand their priorities for developing a welcoming interpretive facility in Bandiagara as the gateway Pays Dogon. The team documented important cultural, historical, and technical references intended to help inform the design of an environmentally responsive Visitor Center (VC) that fits within its context. They also identified ways to improve on the work done for the “Pays Dogon – Interpretive Signs and Journal” project and make it more cohesive with the proposed VC project. This document provides background and practical information about these two projects, the Visitor Center and Village Signage Installations. It should be included with the drawings and used as a companion document to aid in the construction of the village signage and sitework, as well as a primer for the visitor center concept design package.
