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. Please visit our GoFundMe fundraising page by clicking the widget below to learn more about this project and to make a donation.
Learn more by visiting our Kansas Wildlife Exhibit "project" page.
ICTrees had a lot of exciting news to announce in 2015, including a large donations of trees from Loma Vista Nursery in Olathe and Hillside Nursery in Wichita, plus numerous plantings at area schools. 2016 promises to be an even bigger year for ICTrees.
For a list of ways you can help, or just learn more about ICTrees, visit the ICTrees page under "Projects" for more information.
Our inaugural Independence Day Block Party, presented by Freddy's Frozen Custard and Steakburgers, is complete and it was a rousing success! Planning is underway on our 2016 event, with announcements to come this fall on what's in store. In the meantime, please thank our incredibly important LOCAL community partners for making this year's event possible. Those sponsors include Freddy's, our presenting sponsor, as well as Fugate Enterpises and their group of Taco Bell and Pizza Hut restaurants, who sponsored our Fireworks over the Arkansas. And don't forget to give Bob FM and 100.5 The Wolf a listen, as they and parent Connoisseur Media, were our media partners.
Thank you again Wichita for your support of the Block Party!
