Quietly working behind the scenes, the Nature Trust of B.C. helped to secure beautiful and important sanctuaries of land.
Working alone and in partnership with other groups, the Nature Trust helped secure Cathedral Grove near Port Alberni, Top Bridge in Parksville and the Englishman River estuary.
Now, with the help of the Nanaimo Regional District, 84 acres of land in Nanoose Bay will be part of the new Moorecroft park.
Artist Lyndia Terre, who lives in Nanoose, is hosting an exhibit and celebration for the Nature Trust and its 40th anniversary of conservation.
On display is Terre’s multi-media photographs from her stint as artist-in-residence for the Nature Trust.
Terre will be in the gallery, located at 1811 Northwest Bay Rd., Oct. 7, 2-4 p.m.
Tracy Lowen, a representative from the Nature Trust, will also be available to answer questions Oct. 7, 2-4 p.m., and Oct. 8, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Forty per cent of sales from photographs, cards, books and etchings by Terre will be donated to the Nature Trust during those two days.
