The featured bird for the 2017 Pikes Peak Birding and Nature Festival is the Steller’s Jay. The 2017 convention T-shirt art has been created from an original pastel artwork piece by Pikes Peak Community College art student Tasha Ryan.
Her artwork graces the back of the 2017 convention T-shirt with the Pikes Peak Birding and Nature Festival logo on the front.
The 2017 festival T-shirt must be ordered by May 2 through the festival registration form online. No T-shirt orders can be accepted after this date.
Tasha has graciously agreed to sell her original artwork as a fundraiser for the 2018 Festival. The matted and framed artwork will be available for viewing throughout the festival. At Saturday evening’s keynote event there will be a silent auction with proceeds going to support the 2018 Festival.
