During the Earth Day celebrations held at the Reford Gardens last April 23rd, local artist Caroline Jacques produced this painting live. She graciously offered it to the Gardens in order to contribute to raise funds in aid of the Mitis River Regional Park project. The characteristics and biodiversity of the Reford Gardens and the Mitis River Park served as Caroline’s inspiration for this piece.
The Mitis River Regional Park is a conservation, touristic and recreational project in the development phase. It would cover a 347 square km territory, from the mouth of the Mitis River (including the MItis River Bay, the Reford Gardens as well as the Mitis River Park) up to Métis Lakes.
