About Our Foundation

The Bateman Foundation was founded to inspire a lasting relationship with nature through the lens of art, and is currently one of the only non-profits in Canada primarily using artwork to promote a connection to nature and the environment. Through our programs, exhibits, community collaborations, gallery, and retail operations, we inspire a generation of people to have a deep relationship with nature.

By noticing nature’s beauty and importance, the foundation encourages action to ensure the natural world is protected through our three core areas: youth initiatives, eco-literacy, and leadership & mentorship. The foundation’s special programs inspire discovery, understanding and help develop a love of nature which leads to healthier and creative living, environmental stewardship and spiritual growth.
