The biennial Nature of Island Artists Art Show.
For well over 20 years the Nature of Island Artists Art Show has been a unique fundraiser, put on by RLC Park Services and Habitat Aqcuisition Trust, where proceeds from the sales support the nature education programs here at Goldstream. Pieces submitted by artists are either sold outright, or by a minimum donation bid; some pieces are entirely donated and ALL the proceeds work towards our efforts.

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 Goldstream River which is the heart of this Provincial Park.
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 Goldstream Provincial Park 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’.
