Wildsight took out a booth at the Golden Farmers’ Market on July 3 to facilitate a Paint the Birds event.

People of all ages were invited to re-paint the wooden birds, flowers, and bugs along the CP Parking Lot fence. Throughout the day more than 50 people stopped by to spread their creativity.

Wildsight was happy with the turnout, and is hoping to have a repeat of the event later in the month.

Several businesses in town helped make the event possible, including Home Hardware, TRU Hardware, Overwaitea and the Kicking Horse Country Chamber of Commerce.
