Nature Speaker Series
December 4, 2014
Reusable Canvas Bag Painting
Quinta Mazatlán World Birding Center is hosting an earth-friendly, reusable bag decorating evening on December 4th at 6:00 pm, as part of its Nature Lecture Series. Take a ride on the artistic side and go green at the same time! Bring the family out to make a colorful memory this season by personalizing your own canvas bags while enjoying seasonal melodies, hot cocoa and treats. Admission will be $5 and guests will be provided with all the materials needed to create an eco-friendly masterpiece.
Each time you utilize your reusable canvas bag you help the environment by keeping plastic bags out of landfills. Fewer trees are razed to make paper bags and that means more natural habitat for birds and wildlife. Canvas bags are durable and can be used for shopping, gift-giving and more. Enjoy helping the environment while having a great time with your family this Thursday night at Quinta Mazatlán.
