A meaningful way to learn more about our beautiful sanctuary.
2018-2020 Wayside Interpretive Exhibits
The Nature Sanctuary needs site-specific interpretation of its historical features and ecosystems. Quality interpretation enhances your direct and meaningful connection with the landscape and wildlife. The initial sign (shown above) was completed in 2018 when we designed and installed the Robert Fluchel Memorial Butterfly Garden Interpretive Sign. In 2019 and 2020, the Friends of Parkville Nature Sanctuary plans to design and produce six additional wayside exhibits. For 2019: Fundraising is in progress for three interpretive signs:.
The Jim Reed Trail System map and welcoming sign.
The Natural Play and Learning Areas.
Conservation Challenge of Invasive Species.
Our Commitment: The Parkville Nature Sanctuary provides some of the finest nature viewing and hiking in the Kansas City area. Enhancing your visitor experience with wayside signs is our top priority.
Our Needs: Waysides appear simple in form and function, but their creation can be complex. Development requires professional-level knowledge and skills for research, interpretive writing, graphic design and fabrication. Our goal is to raise $3,000 per sign.
