As if walking in nature isn't fun enough, how about a walk in the Yorkton Ravine Ecological Preserve Re:Imagining what creatures may be living in little woodland homes?!
Your task, Yorkton, is to create a woodlands creature home. 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 24)
If you would like to work together and be inspired, I will be holding a workshop on Sunday, September 26 at 2:00 in the Ravine Room at the Gallagher Centre. Sign up on the Facebook Event Page below as space is limited.
Special thanks to Belén Reed for the photo of her woodlands art creation!
