LunarFest is an annual winter event held in BC to celebrate the Lunar New Year like no other. This year’s School Outreach Program provides virtual and in-person craft workshops for elementary students in the Vancouver and Richmond School Districts. The craft is a paper handheld lantern and takes the opportunity of the Year of the Tiger to raise awareness about large cats and their natural habitat. As we share the same planet with these animals, we can support them when we are “Together, Stronger”, in line with this year’s LunarFest theme.
