A Brush With Nature

What a special year 2017 is! Not only is it the 150th birthday of our great nation Canada, but it is also the 30th Anniversary of Northwest Wildlife Preservation Society!

An evening of art, education and philanthropy, A Brush with Nature is a celebration of wildlife preservation featuring guest speaker Robert Bateman!

Guests are invited to an after-hours exploration of the Robert Bateman Centre art gallery featuring works by world-renowned Canadian nature artist Robert Bateman. Sip on beverages by local wineries and craft brewers, and nibble on delicious hors d’oeuvres as you tour the facility, stopping by NWPS’s wildlife tables full of exciting biofacts for you to interact with. Take an up close and personal look at biofacts like mounted raptors (not live), turtle shells and caribou antlers to learn about the fascinating wildlife of British Columbia from our very own biologists who have worked with animals around the world.

Join us in the Steamship Terminal on Victoria’s beautiful Inner Harbour on November 9th to engage with like-minded philanthropists dedicated to ensuring wildlife is preserved for its own intrinsic value and for the benefit of all.  Hear Mr. Robert Bateman himself discuss the magic of nature and his inspiration for spreading this message through art.

Bid on a range of items at the silent auction generously donated by businesses in the community. All funds raised support NWPS’s wildlife education programs and environmental stewardship projects.

All this and more.
