City of Anniston (Anniston Museums and Gardens)

Log Number: ARPML-250717-OMLS-22

The Anniston Museums and Gardens will develop seven outdoor learning hotspots on strategic sites throughout its grounds, each highlighting a unique environmental subject, including native and rare plants, microclimates, bamboo as a renewable resource, water conservation, the butterfly life cycle, bog gardens, and forest ecology. The learning hotspots will be available free of charge to any onsite visitor and will include interactive activities and links to learn more through a Quick Reference (QR) code. The museum will ensure each learning hotspot includes plantings, interactives, and graphic signage to support the visitor experience. By providing a safe, outdoor experience, the museum is responding to the public’s hesitation to visit indoor museums during the COVID-19 pandemic.
