Come help us paint a mural!

Parks Canada invites you to visit us at The Forks and paint a mural showcasing Manitoba's largest national park - Wapusk. This subarctic park protects one of the largest polar bear maternity denning areas in the world and is home to others animals such as belugas, arctic foxes, caribou, wolverines and seals. This park is one of only two national parks in Manitoba, located on the western shores of Hudson Bay.

Just like a really large colouring book, all are welcome to join us in creating a mural using projected images of Wapusk National Park. We will start with painting the tundra and move on, adding layer by layer while learning about and painting the ecosystem, animals and landscape of Manitoba's majestic Hudson Bay lowlands ecosystem.

Never go home empty handed — buttons will be given to all painters!

Venez nous aider à peindre une murale!

Parcs Canada vous invite à nous rendre visite à La Fourche et à peindre une murale mettant en valeur le plus grand parc national du Manitoba - Wapusk. Ce parc subarctique protège l’une des plus grandes aires de mise bas des ours polaires au monde et abrite d’autres animaux comme les bélugas, les renards arctiques, les caribous, les carcajous et les phoques. Ce parc national, l’un des deux seuls du Manitoba, est situé sur la rive ouest de la baie d’Hudson.

Tout le monde est invité à se joindre à nous pour créer une peinture murale, semblable à un grand livre à colorier, à partir d’images projetées du parc national Wapusk. Nous commencerons par peindre la toundra, puis au fil des coups de pinceau, nous apprendrons à connaître les animaux et le paysage du majestueux écosystème des basses terres de la baie d’Hudson au Manitoba.

Ne repartez pas les mains vides - des macarons seront remis à tous les peintres!
