Laura Grant along with 8 students of Norfolk’s Emerging Leaders program created Canada Geese Flyway for the York Street Garage. Laura chose to use Canada geese as a symbol of transportation because of their natural instinctual migration patterns flying in V shape flocks to help break wind. This is a great metaphor of people using public transportation to help lighten the load of driving and carbon emissions. Over 100 wooden geese were painted over the 8 week period. Cattails, a preferred food of Canada geesse accompany the flocks.
