Friends of MK Nature Center (FOMKNC) has recently embarked upon a major upgrade of the interpretive and entrance signs throughout the MK Nature Center, and is very excited to be working on this very important educational tool. These new signs will replace the old signs that have worn, degraded and have fallen apart. To this end, FOMKNC has hired Stephanie Inman, local artist and designer to design and illustrate the signs. Trademark Creative has also been hired to do the sign bases, manage fabrication and installation. “Stephanie has been a joy to work with,” says IDFG Wildlife Educator, Sara Focht. “She creates colorful, and captivating work and is receptive to technical and design revisions. These new signs are going to be lovely and educational-a big upgrade!” Focht adds. Vicky Runnoe and Sara Focht (IDFG) came up with the sign subjects and themes. Vicky did the preliminary writing. With the text and a few ideas and explanations, Stephanie worked up some drafts. Through Idaho Gives (annual giving day in May), membership dues, grants (Morrison Knudsen Foundation, Harry W. Morrison Foundation and the Laura Moore Cunningham Foundation), the FOMKNC has been able to raise most of the money for this interpretive sign project, but still needs financial support. If you would like to donate to the FOMKNC, visit the website http://www.friendsofmknc.org for online donating or a physical address to which the donation can be sent. Your support will help put these new signs on the ground in 2018.
