Youth Arts in the Parks Appalachian Spring Wildflower Art Contest
Youth Arts in the Parks is a student competition that celebrates ecology through art! Through this program and the April art exhibit at Tamarack and online, students have the opportunity as community leaders to raise awareness of Appalachia’s natural diversity and parks. Their works inspire community connections to local ecology and outdoor stewardship. Participants may also have the opportunity to explore the business of art and its role in economic development.

New River Gorge National River, Tamarack, and several West Virginia state parks partner to host this public event in April and May.
