Kiosk Project Upgrade Time!

The OWPHA received a grant from the USDA Rural Development Grant Program to install informational kiosks on the Great Plains Trail.  The goal is to have at least one kiosk on each of the 13 Loops.  To date we have installed 9 of the 13.  The kiosk design incorporates a chimney swift nesting tower surrounded by a 4-sided kiosk.  This design is not only striking but, as an added bonus, offers a conservation feature for the chimney swift, a species of bird that has become 95% dependent on humans for nesting success.  These birds winter in the northern 1/3 of South America and nest basically in the eastern half of North America. Each of the 4 sides has a designated purpose:

During the Fall of 2020, OWPHA will be upgrading all the kiosks to reflect a new interactive road map and a QR code to quickly gain access to the map. The kiosk above is the upgraded kiosk on the Hackberry Flat Loop at the courthouse in Frederick.
