Anita Purves Nature Center

April 1 @ 8:00 am - April 2 @ 4:00 pm

Lynn Hawkinson Smith‘s “Save the Birds, Save the Earth” 36-piece art exhibit is on display in the nature center’s education wing. Visitors can also explore the nature center’s hands-on Field Station exhibit hall, live education animals, Wildlife Observation Room, and Nature Store gift shop. Outside is the Friendship Grove Nature Playscape and the Busey Woods trailhead.

From the artist: “I’m thrilled to be the featured artist at Anita Purves Nature Center. For this exhibit I’m showing 36 giclées of my original bird illustrations. The birds in the exhibit are all birds that we see at some point during the year. Some are here year-round, some just for the summer, and some are birds that stop to rest as they are headed elsewhere. The originals were all done with colored pencil and some also have a graphite background.”

Friday: 8am-5pm
Saturday: 9am-4pm
