Cortes Island Museum & Archive
Thank you to all those who submitted photos in the Museum’s WILD CORTES: WOODS, WETLANDS AND WATERS Photo Contest. It was a great success, highlighting the natural beauty of Cortes Island. A special thanks to Laurel Bohart & Lynne Jordan from the Museum for their organization and to Lynne Barker & Janet Turpin of The Old School House Art Gallery for all their help. Thank you to Photo Tech in Campbell River for their generous donation of prizes.

The show can still be seen this weekend at The Old School House Art Gallery in Whaletown, Friday 6-9, Saturday & Sunday 2-6. The winning photos will also be included in the Museum’s WILD CORTES: WOODS, WETLANDS AND WATERS exhibit which will be up in the end of June.
