The nonprofit conservancy Forest Park Forever launched this digital project to let everyone around the world sit back and enjoy the sounds of our region's greatest civic treasure — no matter where they happen to be. Details:
- Sounds: Recorded in May 2016 by Hugmonster Sound.
- Locations: Recording locations are highlighted on the map higher up on this page. You can also learn more by visiting our Forestparkmap.org entries for the John F. Kennedy Memorial Forest, Emerson Grand Basin, Picnic Island, Deer Lake Savanna and Prairie Boardwalk Near Steinberg Skating Rink.
- Images: Cover photograph by Lynne Lang; team photographs by Jennifer Silverberg.
- Thanks: Forest Park Forever thanks the City of St. Louis and its Department of Parks, Recreation and Forestry, a partner in all we do in the Park; its members and supporters; and all the institutions here in Forest Park.
