Piping Plover Carving Donation

The Friends of Nancy Island and Wasaga Beach Park are thrilled with a recent donation of a life size carving of a Piping Plover.  This wonderful piece of art was created by a Master Carver, Winston C. Smith of Wasaga Beach.  It is a perfect likeness of a plover with superb detail.  The carving will make a great educational tool as it so accurately portrays a species of wildlife that very few people have the opportunity to see in nature.  Thank you, Winston.
