Backyard Wilderness Exhibit 

by Leila Armstrong  | August 24 – September 29

Leila Armstrong is a practicing visual artist who is currently doing her PhD in Evolution and Behaviour at
the University of Lethbridge. She explores the disconnect between people’s everyday lived experience
& their conception of nature as something external and removed. 

With Backyard Wilderness, the art project, Armstrong hopes to give her audience an opportunity 
to pause & reconsider their relationship to urban wildlife.

October 25th  | 1:00 – 4:00 pm

Learn more about local owl species in this hands-on exhibit designed for all ages.
