The highlight of non-profit organisation owlproject.org‘s year is attending BirdLife SA’s African Bird Fair.
The EcoSolutions workshop is brought to a halt, the admin office is out as we all prepare for the Bird Fair. The Bird Fair occurred over the weekend of 8 and 9 September at the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens in Roodepoort.
This is the time that owlproject.org displays all the owl artwork that kids in Alexandra Township have created. This year’s art project was colouring-in owl masks and these kids wowed everyone. The masks were all so unique – various patterns, colours and some were covered in glitter.
The artwork from the 2016 and 2017 art project was also displayed, bringing the total to nearly 2 000 pieces of owl art.
The weekend was made even more memorable as owlproject.org invited kids from the schools who participated in this year’s art project to the botanical gardens. They loved the event, especially the gardens, the waterfall, the Verreaux eagles (aquila verreauxii) and even watched the Bird Fair’s puppet show.
The kids were so proud of their artworks and proud of being owl friendly children. They even started singing one of their well-known songs of invitation to invite everyone to see their art.
