About the Exhibition
Backyard Biodiversity invites you to read, write, draw, and discover BC’s nature through the stories and illustrations of BC authors and artists.
Featuring the books and artwork of CWILL BC (Children’s Writers and Illustrators of BC) members, this exhibition showcases the biodiversity in our backyards, parks, forests and beaches. Immerse yourself in nature through reading, writing and art making – come in to read a story or write a poem, to sketch an animal, or to simply observe the beautiful artwork and specimens on display. Story time will take place daily under the blue whale, or join us on the weekend for a puppet show.
The Beaty Biodiversity Museum is proud to present the work of CWILL BC (Children’s Writers and Illustrators of BC) members, as well as a variety of specimens from the museum’s collections.
This event is free with admission to the Museum.
