National Geographic, The National Audobon Society, and over 150 other organizations have declared 2018 the Year of the Bird. This is to commemorate the Migratory Bird Treaty Act’s 100th year! Lake Conestee Nature Park is well known in the birding community for it’s diverse array of bird species. To date we have counted 219 different species of birds in the park; most of which are migratory species. To help celebrate this milestone in conservation and to bring awareness to the birds at LCNP we will have several bird related public programs this fall. We hope you will join us!
The first of our programs to celebrate birds will be an art in nature experience! Samantha will walk you through the painting stroke by stroke so no artistic experience is necessary! For this class you will be painting a Chickadee perched on a tree limb in the fall (the event picture – full size image can be found in the comments.)
Samantha Bell will be the instructor for this art in the park experience. She is a children’s writer and illustrator and mom of four great kids. She’s also taught drawing and painting to children and adults for the past twenty years. Her favorite subject to paint: wildlife! She still can’t decide on a favorite medium — she loves them all!
Ages: adults and children (ages 8 and up)
When: Saturday, September 15th, 9:30-11:30 am
