Support the new Bateman Art and Nature Centre!

Imagine a place that unlocks the imagination while surrounded by an incredible collection of Robert Bateman’s artwork, the sights and sounds of nature, and learning and activity opportunities throughout the space. The world will see and experience the remarkable legacy of Canada’s renowned artist, naturalist, and conservationist while learning about eco-literacy and artistic techniques.

We are developing an exciting new art, nature, and education centre to create a community space accessible to all. It will integrate art, education and eco-literacy, showcase emerging nature-centric artists, and ensure the legacy care of acclaimed artwork by Robert Bateman, while integrating our mission of reconnecting everyone to the magic of nature through art.

To be a part of making this incredible new art and nature space a reality, please consider donating, or reaching out to our Executive Director, Sarah Theophilus, to discuss sponsorship opportunities at [email protected].
