WPF Announces Crowdfunding Campaign for Kansas Wildlife Exhibit Educational Signage
Exciting things are happening in Riverside Park. The Friends of the Kansas Wildlife Exhibit and the Wichita Parks Foundation are working together to bring much needed improvements to the Kansas Wildlife Exhibit. A generous donation from the Pamela Edwards Pet Trust in May 2015 provided valuable seed money for several long-overdue projects. However, there are other needs. As the year ends, we are kicking off a new crowdfunding initiative to raise funds for new educational signage at the exhibit. Our goal is to have the signs installed in time for National Zoo Day, which is April 8, 2016. Learn more by visiting our Kansas Wildlife Exhibit "project" page.
Please visit our GoFundMe fundraising page by clicking the widget below to learn more about this project and to make a donation.
The Wichita Parks Foundation (WPF) is a volunteer-led, 501(c)(3) charitable organization founded in 2011.
Our mission is to enhance the quality and maintain the heritage of Wichita’s park system by assembling necessary resources through developing partnerships and fostering relationships.
