Species on the Edge Contest Art on Display at D&R Greenway Land Trust

October 10th, 2017

The 2017 Species on the Edge Art and Essay contest drew in more than 2,500 entries from students throughout New Jersey. This contest is designed to empower 5th grade students through the arts by writing a creative essay and drawing an original art piece of a threatened or endangered New Jersey species.

“We are inspired to connect the next generation of New Jersey conservation leaders with their natural world. Their art and essays illustrate the wonders of nature, revealing challenges we must overcome to help vulnerable wildlife survive in our densely populated state.” – Conserve Wildlife Foundation Executive Director David Wheeler

All the winning artwork from the 2017 Species on the Edge Art and Essay contest is on display at D&R Greenway Land Trust at the Johnson Education Center through October 18, 2017. CWF is thankful to D&R Greenway for hosting the winning artwork each year at the Olivia Rainbow Gallery. Named by Leslie and Chris Kuenne of Princeton in memory of their daughter Olivia, a burgeoning artist who loved the outdoors, the gallery exhibits works of children and students from pre-school through high school ages.
