On November 25th, Jessica Bradford (NTNB Communication Coordinator) and I visited a grade three/four classroom at the Hazen White-St. Francis School in Saint John for a conservation and art workshop. Jessica taught the students about land conservation in the province, and then I led a printmaking art workshop, using various NB Species at Risk as the inspiration for the images.
After the workshop, we met board member Walter Emrich for a quick hike through the Boar's Head Nature Preserve (which is only a few kilometers from the school). Walter led us through the trail system to the shoreline. I was immediately captured by the coastal rock features, especially within the context of early winter colours.
Jessica captured this beautiful panoramic view overlooking Grand Bay:
