OAK GLEN PRESERVE ARTS AND NATURE FESTIVAL

SATURDAY APRIL 21, 2018

Spring is here, which means it's time for The Wildlands Conservancy's seventh annual Arts and Nature Festival at Oak Glen Preserve. Talented artist, in many mediums, Lynn Berkeley is our special guest artist this year.

The Preserve opens at 8 am, giving you plenty of time to take a walk through the Southern California Montane Botanic Garden and Children's Outdoor Discovery Center before the festivities begin.

A variety of art and nature related activities kick off at 9 am. From making your own walking stick to Story Time with the Beaumont Library District, there's something for everyone at the Arts and Nature Festival.

It wouldn't be an arts festival without art! Don't miss the Gateway Art Gallery where Lynn Berkeley's art will be on display. You can also find other wonderful works of art on display throughout the Botanic Garden, as well as the Children's Outdoor Art Gallery Art Under the Trees at Alder Rest.

 

ENTRANCE TO THE PRESERVE AND ALL ACTIVITIES ARE FREE!
