KC Curiosity Passport - Champion Tree

Box Decommissioned.

Why was it decommissioned?

Alexis has committed to replacing every letterbox once. If the replacement letterbox goes missing, she will find a new landmark to highlight & place a letterbox there instead. The original (then, missing one) will be designated in the Eco-Wall of Curiosities & a new art box will be added to the collection. This is what happened to this box. Sad times.

The Champion Tree box is #3 of 26 boxes in this series.

 

Thanks for joining the fun of The Curiosity Passport! We hope it inspires play and exploration of the KC area. If you haven't already viewed the wacky, wall-full of mini-mosaics, upcycled from used plastic gift cards, at Pawn & Pint & Buttonwood Art Space, these are excellent places to start your journey (not required, but definitely nifty!). Pick up a passport (if you don't already have a logbook) there and follow these clues to find the awesome letterboxes at the locations that inspired those mini-mosaics in real life.
