Digital Tools

On each of the pages, Landscape, Vegetations, The Sky, and Human Narratives, we embedded Cascade Theme Story Map powered by ESRI. This digital tool allowed a stream of narrative, images, video, and an ESRI powered map to tell the story of Craggy Gardens by unraveling its different layers.
