Greater Arkansas River Nature Association (GARNA) and Salida Area Parks Open Space & Trails (SPOT) partnered to replace signs along Monarch Spur Trail

Replaced Monarch Spur Trail signs

You may have noticed along the Monarch Spur Trail that the worn and weathered signs have recently been replaced.

Originally installed in May 2008, the sign content was developed by Suzanne Ward (a SPOT founder and now involved in Foodshed Alliance).

After 5 years of weather and sunlight exposure, the signs were in bad shape and need of replacement. Funding for the replacement of the signs came from grant funding through GARNA, with additional financial support from SPOT. The signs were reprinted with the original content, and they were installed in September 2013.

Thank you GARNA and SPOT for teaming up to get this job done!
