Event Details

May 2nd, 2020, 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Meeting Lake (Saskatoon/Prince Albert), Saskatchewan
Habitat Restoration

Get outside and get active in the helping us plant a variety of tree and shrub seedlings to restore habitat at meeting lake! This property has previously been cleared of trees and other vegetation and is suffering from fragmentation and loss of wetlands.

Meeting Lake is located within the Boreal Transition Ecoregion, where grassland, shrubland and woodland habitats meet. These habitats are home to a variety s of mammals, waterfowl and a host of grassland and forest birds. By planting White Spruce, Jack Pine, Red Osier Dogwood, Chokecherry and Saskatoons we will be working to bring this property back to its’ full glory!

Carpooling: If you’re interested in carpooling to the property with other volunteers (driving or catching a ride) please click here. There’s also a wait list feature if there’s no car listed yet. Happy travels!
