Today we are highlighting the latest “Apps Gone Live” throughout the month of June. We have had the pleasure of launching a variety of apps for events and attractions including collegiate gardens, historic tours, and museums.
Calaveras Big Trees State Park
Established in 1931, Calaveras Big Trees State Park preserves two groves of giant sequoias - the world's largest trees. The team at STQRY partnered with the team at Calaveras Big Trees State Park to create this new tour consisting of an 800-foot loop trail. Visitors may learn about the plants and animals that live among the giant sequoia within a mixed conifer forest. The trail is called the Threes Senses Trail and consists of ten stops that provide visual descriptions and evoke the senses of hearing, touching, and smelling.
Canada's national parks, national marine conservation areas, and national historic sites are the ultimate awe-inspiring experience. Enhance your visit to Parks Canada with this self-guided tour app. Visit at your own pace and take advantage of insider information, geolocated points of interests, maps, photos and quizzes.
Tours are available in seven locations across the country, including Les Forges du Saint Maurice National Historic Site, Batoche National Historic Site and Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site. There is even a quiz feature to test your knowledge.
