ARTS PARK this summer will feature the art project, the local Amazing Piping Plover Birds. Participants will be given pre-packed modeling clay to make their own piping plover bird and surroundings. This project is in partnership with Sharing Our Shore-Waukegan, a program of the Lake County Audobon Society. The partnership’s goal is to work cooperatively to advance bird conservation and increase public environmental awareness. Waukegan's unique dune and swale habitat is home to a diversity of plants and wildlife, including endangered and threatened species like the Piping Plover. The special habitat is something to be treasured - and whether you live, work, or go to school, have feet, wings, or roots-we all share the Waukegan Shore!
All ARTS PARK projects are free and can be taken home. This year, the supplies can also be taken home to complete the project there. For participants who are interested, each project will be photographed and shown on the Jack Benny Center for the Arts Facebook page.
