New road signs will aid visitors to scenic byway

September 24, 2006


— Signs and brochures will soon provide more information to wildlife enthusiasts visiting a wetlands area in central Kansas frequented by hundreds of thousands of migrating birds.

Federal highway officials this week awarded Barton County a nearly $134,000 grant to help construct the interpretive signs along the National Wetlands and Wildlife Scenic Byway, which links the Cheyenne Bottoms and Quivira National Wildlife Refuge.

Barton County will match the federal dollars with a $75,000 commitment.

Barton County Administrator Richard Boeckman said the money would go toward interpretive markers, a CD audio tour, a Web site and brochures.
