On Tuesday, June 11th, Get to Know will be hosting the next in our series of monthly webinars to share great ideas, activities, and resources for using the creative arts, technology, and outdoor activity to connect youth with nature. This month we feature "Environmental Statement Art: its power to communicate and create connections.” We are pleased to announce Katie Allen, Liam O’Doherty and Karen R. Hollingsworth as our speakers, each of whom have taken on youth-based environmental art projects and will share their expertise with you.
On Thursday, June 6th, the City of Calgary and the Get to Know Program will be launching the OISEAU: Agents of Nature Mobile App at seven new city park sites across Calgary. The free mobile app helps connect youth with the outdoors in City of Calgary Parks through fun, interactive and place-based challenges available on the user’s personal android or IOS device (i.e. smartphone or mp3 player).
