This spring, Trail Tales will be installing an additional 16 interpretive signs, along the Anacortes waterfront, adding to the discovery stations that were completed in 2013 along the Tommy Thompson Trail between 34thStreet and March Point. The new sign panels are currently in the manufacturing phase and will be installed in April and May from 17th Street and Q Streets to Guemes Channel. Above is a "sneak preview" of one of the panels - this one will be at the new discovery station near Seafarers' Memorial.
Save the date for the dedication and ribbon cutting of the new interpretive panels on June 13th at Cap Sante Seafarers' Memorial Park. The dedication event will celebrate with Trail Tales partners, the Port of Anacortes, the Marine Technology Center and others who have supported and shared the sign project. Trail Tales volunteers will be providing guided walks to the new stations and on hand at the new discovery points to share more of Anacortes' history and restoration of the waterfront with the community.
If you have enjoyed the first 16 interpretive signs along the trail and would like to learn more about the topics they cover, please explore the Trail Tales website where you can see each sign and expand on any of the topics for more information and links.
