KC Curiosity Passport - Swope

The Swope box is #20 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.

Want to collect all of the Curiosity Passport letterboxes? Check out the KC Curiosity Passport Menu!

Use the photo clues below to look for these landmarks. Then follow the description on each photo to find the letterbox location. After you have found the letterbox, make sure to record your find on atlasquest.com

Don't forget to use #KCCuriosityPassport in your posts!

REMINDER: Do NOT tear up the area.

The memorial is over 100 years old. The trail walls were most likely built in the 1930s. This box will be removed or moved if damage is done to these historic structures. 

Please leave no trace (except the letterbox). 

*TIPS: This is a city park & memorial. Please be respectful & discrete.

Please leave it better than you find it (i.e. pick up trash).

There are MANY muggles who visit the park & memorial. Please be stealthy when finding & rehiding. 

Please rehide well.*
