Join ecology enthusiast Jayden Gross for this online workshop on how to make environmentally friendly ornaments!  Jayden will guide you through making a paint-by-number template on simple wooden ornaments, and show you how to mix primary colours to get the right shade to complete your masterpiece.  You will be able to choose between two of Stanley Park’s charismatic critters, herons and owls, or you can paint freestyle and pick your favourite animal or plant to paint.  Jayden and SPES educators will be available to answer any animal inquires during the program!

The templates are included in the ticket price.  Tree cookies ornaments (sustainably harvested and hand cut by the eductor) can be purchased for $2 each at the Nature House on Saturdays and Sundays from 10AM-4PM starting Dec. 5.

You must provide your own paintbrush (fine tip recommended) and paints (acrylic paints work best and are suggested in primary colours plus black and white).  Paint your ornament during the program, or share your finished ornament with us on social media after you are done!


*Tickets must be purchased in advance. Fees for this program include the paint-by-number template.  Tree cookie ornaments to paint available for purchase from the Nature House.  You must provide your own paintbrushes and paints. Ticket sales close 30 minutes before the start of the program.

**This program will take place on Zoom, so please make sure you have Zoom downloaded well in advance of the webinar.  A Zoom link can be found within your confirmation email, and will also be sent out one hour before the start of the program.

***This program will be recorded and available by request for up to a month after the program through a private link. 


We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and help steward is the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. Since time immemorial, Coast Salish peoples have lived reciprocally with the land, harvesting and cultivating foods and medicines and practicing ceremony. The abundance of these lands and waters, which enables us to live, work, and play here today, is a result of the past and on-going stewardship and advocacy of the Coast Salish peoples.
