Paint the adorable Tyco the Turtle from Harris Nature Center for this virtual fundraiser! No experience is needed to paint - we make it easy with a printed outline and carbon paper so you can trace the image onto your canvas and then guide you step-by-step to paint! This event is hosted by the Harris Nature Center Foundation and Paint Your Poison. Part of the proceeds of each ticket will go toward supporting Harris Nature Center Foundation to help fund upgrades to the Nature Exploration Area, a playscape for kids, and to support two “Music in Nature” public events set for later 2021. You can choose to double your donation as well!

“Harris Nature Center Foundation wants to be ready to support engaging programming once we can celebrate nature together again,” said Alexa Warwick, Ph.D., HNC Foundation board member. “Tyco was the first resident wildlife to be housed at the center, so it’s fitting his image will help painters of all levels connect with nature in a fun, creative way.” The eastern box turtle is now one of 22 resident wildlife cared for by the center. All are animals brought to the center because they could not be reintroduced into the wild. Many are utilized to educate visitors on Michigan’s native wildlife. Harris Nature Center Coordinator Kati Adams said, "During the Zoom session we’ll answer questions about the center, our new nature and wildlife observation deck that’s handicapped-accessible, and our resident wildlife.” Learn more about Harris Nature Center Foundation at www.hncfoundation.org.
