If you think that QR codes are just for magazines, posters and marketing materials, you had better think again. QR codes are proving to be very flexible and very useful that these have been used for a lot of other things.
In fact, QR codes have recently appeared at Wood Lake Nature Center in Richfield Minnesota. These QR codes help memorialize the people behind the benches, rock or gardens at the park. Park director Karen Shragg explains that they are encouraging everyone who wants to commemorate a loved one to put up the QR codes, which would take scanners to a posted biography online.
If you want to try it out, you can visit Wood Lake Nature Center, go to the Sue M. Olson garden and scan the code to discover who Olson was. The Olson QR code is the first to appear in the park.
Shragg says that the nature park has several memorials and she knows that people wonder who these people are. Now with the QR codes, the mystery is lifted and visitors will be able to know who these loved ones are and what their legacies hold.
This would be a great way to commemorate the life of someone dear to you. By sponsoring a tree or a garden, you are not only giving back to nature but also letting other people know about the life of your relative, family or friend.
QR codes have also been used in other parks for other purposes. For example, San Diego County now has QR codes in their parks that teach about fitness and health, while four Connecticut parks are using QR codes to help lost hikers find their way
Other parks all around the country are putting up more information about the parks, trails and other attractions behind QR codes.
