In these days of smart phones and apps, a QR scanner is free and easy to download. You use it like one of those price scanners in a grocery store. Turn it on and hover your phone’s camera over the code and it automatically takes you to the associated picture, document, video, etc that is found somewhere online.
We thought a QR code would be a great way to help visitors easily access current information about Coldwater Spring restoration efforts, wildlife sightings, what’s in bloom, and where to find these things. New visitors can show up and scan the code and get a guide they can take with them and highlight the most beautiful things. At the same time, recurring visitors will be alerted to things that have popped up since their last tour. It may also give park patrons interesting reasons to deviate from their normal routes to see Coldwater Spring from a different angle.
