Announcing the Winners of the “Celebrate Turtles” Coloring Contest

May 25, 2021

The Harris Center recently teamed up with award-winning wildlife artist and conservationist Matt Patterson for a coloring contest in celebration of New Hampshire turtles. Kids were invited to choose from one of four turtle coloring pages created by Matt, and to share their masterpieces with us. We received more than 30 entries, and it was very tough to pick just four winners.

Thank you to everyone who shared their colorful art with us, and congratulations to these winning artists!
