As if walking in nature isn't fun enough, how about going for a walk in the Yorkton Ravine Ecological Preserve and chancing upon little woodland homes and stores?!
Your task, Yorkton, is to create a woodlands creature home, farm or business.
Work solo, with your family, your friends, your colleges or your small group.
Here are your steps:
1. Come take a walk in the Ravine and imagine where a good location may be for your creation.
2. Try using as much "found in nature" objects as possible to build a woodlands creature home.
3. Construct your home, adding any special features you'd like. Add your name(s) or leave it unanimous - it's up to you!
4. Set your "home" up anywhere along the 2.6 km trail at the Yorkton Ravine Ecological Preserve (see the link for the map)
5. Invite your friends and neighbours to go for a walk and find your Woodland Wonder along the way!
6. Take home your creation at the end of the Culture Days (October 16)
If you would like to work together and be inspired, I will be holding a workshop on Friday, September 23rd at the Gallagher Centre from 4:30 - 6:30pm where you can create your own Woodlands Creature home and then take it out to the Ravine to find its spot. Please see the Woodland Workshop event to sign up.
A special thanks to Belén Reed for the photo of her woodlands art creation!
