In the summer of 2012, scientists and artists descended on B.C’s Flathead River Valley (located in the southeastern most corner of the province) to document its rare species, explore its breathtaking landscapes, and experience its natural beauty. The result? The Flathead En Plein Air art exhibit, a collection of 13 original paintings from the Flathead – a region that has been described as one of the most ecologically important places on the planet.

Please join us on May 4th 2015 from 6pm to 8 pm to learn more about this incredible place!

We will be joined by renowned conservationist Harvey Locke for an engaging discussion about the potential for conservation in the Flathead Valley. Locke’s work on conservation has been recognized both nationally and internationally, receiving the J.B. Harkin Award for Conservation (2013), the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal (2013), and most recently, the Fred M. Packard International Parks Merit Award (2014).
