Schools Go Wild at the Launch of the Robert Bateman “Get to Know” Contest!

Local Schools visit the park on April 12, 13 and 14 to officially launch and participate in the Robert Bateman Art, Writing, Photo and Video Contest.  Local artist, Elizabeth Dawe, will lead an art workshop before students head out to “Meet their Wild Neighbours of the Forest”  and gather ideas for their submissions to the contest.
