Admire and shop for art made from and inspired by nature.  Celebrate the beauty and splendor of art in the forest.  Get your face painted and become a work-of-art. Beat on a drum, take a horse drawn wagon ride and go for a walk in the forest. Enjoy an edible aquifer and learn about backyard tree planting. Take a tree seedling home to plant in your yard.

Explore the Bill Fisch Forest Stewardship and Education Centre to discover how it captures rainwater, will create its own electricity and was constructed from locally sourced and repurposed materials. Building tours take place at 11 a.m., 12 p.m., 1 p.m. and 2 p.m.
