Bandana How-To's

| Taylor Freimund

For the 2018 Fall Membership Drive, we decided to switch things up a bit for our new and renewing Members. Last year, The Parklands gifted Members at the Parklands Partner level ($100 and up) a “Fish of Floyds Fork” bandana. This year, we created a bandana that gives our Members an interpretive glance into the world of fungi that can be used to identify mushrooms on their exploration in The Parklands. A bandana is more than just a piece of fabric. It can be a statement piece, an art piece, or even a survival tool (with proper training, of course). Read below for various tricks on how you can sport and use our newest Membership bandana.  

“The Cowboy”

Give this style of bandana a go, whether it’s for aesthetics or to wipe your sweat away after a long run in the park. Either way, you’ll be sure to resemble the western cowboys of the mountains. Fold into a triangle and tie the ends at the nape of your neck.   

     

“The Knot” 

Some say this is the trendiest of bandana styles. Simply fold your bandana in half, then fold sections inward to lengthen the bandana for the perfect knot.  

      

“The Headband”

Great for a long ride or run on the Louisville Loop. Add water to keep yourself cool during the hotter months. Follow directions for “The Knot” and tie on your head.   

   

“The Dog Collar”

Use “The Knot” and “The Cowboy” on your pet! Just make sure to leave the fabric loose for your furry friend.  

   

“Accessorize Your Accessory”

Add some personality to your bag with the fungus bandana!  

Other ways you can enjoy the new Membership bandana:  

-Bug Swatter 

-Napkin 

-Tourniquet 

-Hang it on your wall as art  

Now you can do more than just visit The Parklands, you can take it home with you. To become a Member to receive perks such as the “Fungus Among Us” bandana, visit theparklands.org/Member.
