Local student art showcased on buses

Guelph Transit is participating in the 2011 Biodiversity public art display coordinated by the da Vinci Arts and Science Environmental Leadership Program.

This art display focuses on biodiversity and encourages individuals to consider their impact on the environment. Biodiversity is defined as a variety of species, their genetic makeup, and the natural habitats in which they occur. It is a web of interconnected species and environments; a collection of all different genes, species, and ecosystems in a region. Source: www.whybiodiversity.com

Through an agreement with our contracted advertising sales company Sambrook Media, space is being provided in 24 buses in the overhead advertising areas. As well, Sambrook has also graciously donated a rear bus advertising sign on one Guelph Transit vehicle to display material. Guelph Transit will be providing additional art display space in the public notice sign holders in the remaining 41 buses.

So ride the buses to see the talents of local students showcased.  The launch of the of the Biodiversity Campaign is on Tuesday, January 4, between 12 noon and 4 p.m. at the Olde Quebec Street Mall.

Guelph’s Pollinator Park and Natural Heritage Strategy are two initiatives aimed at enhancing biodiversity in our urban environment.
