Clarksville, TN – The Friends of Dunbar Cave recently donated several new interpretative signs at the park. The park’s Interpretative Specialist, Amy Wallace said, “We wanted to have something at the cave to interpret what people were seeing when we could not be there to explain it to them. The idea had come and gone throughout the years, but didn’t get done until the Friends group offered to fund interpretive displays.”
Amy Wallace came up with the topics to be covered and how the information was to be shown. “I wanted to cover only what could be seen while standing at the cave entrance, so the topics chosen were prehistory (how the cave entrance was used in the distant past), resort era (what were the structures used for?), current times (how that part of the cave is used now) and the lake (what might you see around the lake?)”.
