Nature in the Arts

Nature in the Arts is a series of events that combines the outdoors with hands-on art experiences for all ages. Partnering with local artists and organizations, Shirley Heinze Land Trust invites you to visit our preserves to create a one-of-a-kind piece of art you can take home. Check out all our Nature in the Arts events below to find out more about each activity!
