San Luis Obispo

Pacific Wildlife Care recently celebrated its 30th anniversary at the Wild in the Plaza event at Mission Plaza, which featured artistic wildlife creations by San Luis Obispo High School student Kaya Gwinn.

Kaya’s colorful magical owl was adopted as the logo for Wild in the Plaza and was used for coloring book renderings that were available for attendees to paint at a craft table.

She also painted a forest scene with holes cut out where the animal’s heads would be so that people could take pictures of themselves as forest creatures.
