Do you love nature and art?  Join us in designing a vibrant wrap for a mobile “Nature Play” trailer that brings nature-inspired activities to various parks & beaches in Barrie throughout all seasons. This process will be an opportunity to learn and work through a proposal process from start to finish.  We will be inviting a local organization to share their knowledge of native flora and fauna with a focus on the significance or role this nature plays in our communities.

Sorry, this event has passed.
