‘Helping the Wild’ student project creates artwork
April 17, 2013
Helping the Wild was started in November 2012 by 8-year-old elementary student Siena Lopez. Today, there are 32 students who create wildlife artwork to bring awareness to threatened and endangered wildlife. The theme guiding their work is the quote "For in the end we will conserve only what we love, We will love only what we understand, We will understand only what we are taught," by B. Dioum.
Helping the Wild, a program of Trails & Vistas, will have fun hands-on crafts for children and families at the Earth Day celebration. In addition attendees can learn more about this year's 10th anniversary art hike on the Pacific Crest Trail on Donner Summit that will take place this September. The art hike sells out annual and tickets will go on sale online at trailsandvistas.org on Earth Day, April 22.
