The Goldstream Nature House is about to experience our biennial transformation from Nature House extraordinnaire to Nature Art Gallery. From September 28th until October 14th, 2013 when you open the doors to the Nature House you will witness nature inspired art work by a variety of local island artists. For well over 20 years the Nature of Island Artists Art Show has been a unique fundraiser where proceeds from the sales support the nature education programs here at Goldstream.
The Goldstream Nature House would like to extend a big thank you to all those who participated in the 2011 Nature of Island Artists Art Show, from artists to volunteers to visitors and purchasers.
Now we look forward to another great show with many returning artists and are pleased at the new artist entries including a few youth participants. Please join us in the Park and come see if any of these nature inspired art pieces captures your heart.
If you would like more information regarding the show, please contact the Nature House at 250-478-9414 or
2011 Show - A Celebration of Life and History in Nature
As you may know this year is BC Parks’ centennial celebration and British Columbians are celebrating 100 years of life and 100 years of history in BC’s Provincial Parks. 100 years have past since the birth of our first park; but thousands of years have passed and thousands of births have occurred here in the GoldstreamRiver which is the heart of this ProvincialPark.
Following the disastrous April 16th, 2011 gas spill into Goldstream’s Salmon bearing river, the need to protect our natural world and increase awareness has been amplified. This year our theme will celebrate the history and the uniqueness of our natural environments.
For GoldstreamProvincialPark the life created in the river is what we celebrate as the history and the heart of the Park. Chris Paul, a member of the Tsartlip Nation and a Coast Salish artist has captured this unique celebration with his piece “Sockeye’.
