Take a Virtual Tour of the 1883 Water Works
Local Boy Scout Chris Ray has created signs and mounted them at points of interest throughout the Water Works property. Each sign has a QR code that you can scan using a free app on your smartphone. Scan the code, and you're taken to a page at poudrelandmarks.org containing detailed information about the point of interest. You can also directly view these pages here on our website, in effect taking a virtual tour of the Water Works!
Chris, a member of Boy Scout Troop 96 in Fort Collins, first visited the Water Works during an open house in summer 2014 and realized that it would be an interesting place to perform volunteer service work. He started attending Friends of the Water Works meetings in November and worked with its members to identify an appropriate Eagle Scout Service Project. As part of his project, he compiled information to be posted on the poudrelandmarks.org website and made informative signs, complete with QR-code links to the website, to mount at the Water Works. With his volunteers, he also graveled two entranceways, cleaned out the historic chicken coop, cleared debris, and installed the signs with the aim of improving the outdoor tour experience during Water Works open houses.
