The Wood County Park District recently received a grant it will put toward installing new signs in its parks.
The district was given $750 toward a dozen signs which will include QR codes that link to audio files that can include wildlife sounds and be used to accompany tours of the parks.
"The interpretive signage will provide park visitors with additional information about each park's natural features, wildlife and habitats," said Jamie Sands, the district's volunteer services and communications specialist.
The grant comes from the National Association for Interpretation, which helps fund small regional projects that enhance park visitors' interpretive experience. The total cost of the project is $4,358.
Signs will be installed at W.W. Knight Nature Preserve, Otsego Park, Black Swamp Nature Preserve, Cedar Creeks Preserve, J.C. Reuthinger Memorial Preserve, Rudolph Savanna, Fuller Preserve, Cricket Frog Cove Preserve, Bradner Preserve, Beaver Creek Preserve and Sawyer Quarry Nature Preserve.
