Rib Mountain State Park gets grant for video tour

RIB MOUNTAIN (WAOW) -

The $3,000 dollar grant comes from AT&T Wisconsin Pioneers and it's being used to develop a new video tour of the state park.

Park officials said the video is meant to help people with special needs get a glimpse at some of the most beautiful spots in the park, even if they can't physically climb there themselves.

"They'll be able to experience them and even those that are able to get out there, they'll be able to say wow, that's fantastic, I've got to take a hike and go out there and get more people to use more areas of the park and let them know the wonderful resource that is here," said Property Manager William Bursaw.

Officials also said the video is a great way to share the beauty of the park, in all four seasons.

They said that will give everyone who sees the video tour, a chance to experience the stunning scenes all year long.

Park officials said the video is expected to take about a year to produce.

They said they're excited to share this new opportunity with everyone in the community.
