The Marion Cultural Development Corporation provided $1,100 to the Conservancy for a project to label the landscape beds in the park’s northwest corner. That area of the park has 50 distinct landscape beds but the beds have never been interpreted for the public. On completion of the project, each bed will have a post with a label that provides the bed name, number, and a QR code. The QR code will take viewers to that bed’s individual webpage where park-goers can learn what plants are the bed. The bed labels will also allow MSPC to develop maps and handouts so park-goers can better navigate the park.
Our thanks to the Marion Cultural Development Corporation and MSPC volunteer Chet Zenone, who is building the posts.
