On September 26th Friends of the Kaw unveiled our newest project, signs at Kansas River access ramps highlighting interesting local history and natural history. Best of all, we have a new map of the river and safety information for boaters. This is only the first of many that we plan to develop.
The authors-- Dr. Cynthia Annett (eagles), Dr. Dale Nimz (history) and Laura Calwell, the Kansas Riverkeeper (safety). The signs were designed by Temashio Anderson and Nasbah Ben.
