A meaningful way to learn more about our beautiful sanctuary.
Wayside Interpretive Exhibits
The Nature Sanctuary has created 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 was completed in 2018 when we designed and installed the Robert Fluchel Memorial Butterfly Garden Interpretive Sign. In 2019, 2020, and 2021 the Friends of Parkville Nature Sanctuary designed and produced seven additional wayside exhibits. 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. Donations to the Friends of Parkville Sanctuary are used to maintain quality interpretation for education and enjoyment of Sanctuary visitors.
