2012 Art Exhibit
Children of all ages are invited to participate in the Lafayette Ecological Services Office's "2012 Threatened and Endangered Species Art Exhibit". Each child should create an original piece of artwork featuring a federally threatened or endangered species, which will be displayed on easels for viewing during the exhibit. The artwork should include the child's name and age; the name of the species and its status (i.e., threatened, endangered, candidate); and a short paragraph containing a few simple facts about the species, its habitat, and why it is threatened or endangered. Children will make buttons or magnets featuring their original artwork for a keepsake! Artwork is due to Monica Sikes on or before (preferably before) Wednesday May 30 at noon.
WHEN AND WHERE:
The event will be held in the Estuarine Habitats and Coastal Fisheries Building Interpretive Center on Thursday, May 31, 2012, from 2:00 to 3:30. Please mark your calendars - it will be fun for all ages! We encourage you to visit the exhibit and talk with the kids about their artwork, even if you do not have a child in the show.
Please circulate this information to anyone you know that may be interested in having their child participate.
Please contact Monica Sikes (291-3118) or Debbie Fuller (291-3124) for additional information.
