QR Codes and The 43 Trees Project Interactive Walk

On Sunday, April 21, 2013, The 43 Trees Project will be having an Earth Day walk through Roosevelt Park in Edison, New Jersey.  What makes this different than other Earth Day walks is the use of QR (Quick Response) Codes that will augment the experience of meeting many of the 43 trees.

What are QR Codes?  A QR Code is a square grid that contains square dots where certain types of information can be encoded.  The codes can then be read by an optical device, such as a smart phone.  By placing a QR Code near our subjects, The 43 Trees Project will be able to connect the viewer to videos, readings, and other information about the trees, the park, and Earth Day.  There are many QR Code readers available for FREE at the Apple and Android app stores.

We look forward to seeing you at Grove 2A in Roosevelt Park at 1:00 pm.
