Creativity on the Trail
To showcase the intersection of nature and creative expression
For youth who participate in our programs, Creativity on the Trail is an outlet to express experiences in the outdoors in a creative way.
How do you show your creativity? How does nature make you feel? What catches your attention when you spend time outdoors?
We invite youth, ages 12-20, to reflect on these questions and submit their art below. Whether it’s a painting, a poem, a photograph, a video, etc., we would love to share and be inspired by what you have to show.
Art will be showcased at our end-of-season symposium in May 2023.
How to participate:
Choose 1 of the 5 categories of submission. Depending on your category, you can send us a .jpeg, .png, or .pdf.

Artist Statement: For me, painting is a lot about presence and acceptance. I often remind myself to be present and accept my art for what it is rather than how I judge it to be. I also believe that we can learn a lot from nature and how well it demonstrates these traits. When I saw a picture of this quail, I felt the content appreciation of its beautiful environment and I hope to have conveyed its nature in this piece.
Submit Your Creation!
