About the Event
Take Action! and join Ijams and The Big Camera to make ecologically-minded art from invasive species removed by volunteers at Mead's Quarry!
Using developer made from invasive plants, The Big Camera will teach you to make art prints from these species. You'll work using the sunshine, sumac, vinegar, salt, and water to create a couple of smaller images and, depending on turn-out, a large print to take home!
This is a FREE event, and as part of this workday, the plan is to document invasive species removal happening at Ijams as part of an ongoing partnership. Come explore!
This event is part of Ijams Nature Center's 2023 Take Action! series. Take Action! is a year-round conservation effort that strives to educate local communities to the different issues surrounding sustainability; empower individuals to live, shop, create, and explore more sustainably; and cultivate a culture that celebrates sustainable practices and initiatives, of all sizes, every day.
