Winners 2016
Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory, Bug Quest, Summer Camp Bondar Challenge


In 2016, The Roberta Bondar Foundation collaborated with the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory to host a unique exhibition where Dr. Roberta Bondar’s fine art photography was on display to the Cambridge community and surrounding area.

The Foundation was pleased to work alongside the Cambridge Butterfly Conservation, a privately owned Canadian corporation that shares the same passion for community, art, education, and research.

In addition to the exhibition, the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory hosts a summer day camp called Bug Quest, whose campers participated in the 2016 Summer Camp Bondar Challenge program. This was an exciting opportunity to have the Travelling Exhibition and Learning Experience and Summer Camp Bondar Challenge take place simultaneously.

The following are the Winners of the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory– Bug Quest, 2016 Summer Camp Bondar Challenge. These images may be chosen to travel with The Foundation’s Travelling Exhibition and Learning Experience to a community hosting the exhibition.

Congratulations to all participants. Please click on a photo to see enlarged view.
