Volunteers with the STL Crane Project folded more than 1,000 oversized Origami cranes that were placed on Forest Park's Art Hill in memory of St. Louis area first responders killed in the line of duty.
The centerpiece of the Aug. 5 memorial program (rained out from Aug. 4) was a 150-foot banner listing the names of fallen responders dating back to 1960.
The installation provided a visually stunning effect, with cranes set up on the hill beneath the St. Louis Art Museum.

The cranes can be adopted for a $10 donation, with funds supporting The Backstoppers.
