This will include ~1.5 hours of walking on uneven ground and single-track trails. Participants should be confident hikers and come prepared with good footwear, water, and snacks. Participants will need to bring their own art supplies.
Join the Nature Conservancy of Canada for a guided hike and en plein air outing with Geoffrey Grantham, a well-known, talented impressionist painter of the area and passionate community member.
The group will walk through the future Halifax Wilderness Park, exploring its vistas and uncommon landscape through the eyes and stories of an artist. Participants will have a chance to explore the surroundings through their own art – painting, sketching, or photography.
The event is taking place in the future Halifax Wilderness Park, an already popular hiking and swimming destination in the Williams Lake and Purcell’s Cove area which the Nature Conservancy of Canada is working alongside Halifax Regional Municipality and the Shaw Group to preserve. The site features gorgeous vistas, animal habitat, and rare landscape within minutes of the city.
