Ramped up for Restoration

Event Details

May 4th, 2019, 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM

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

Take part in the restoration of Meeting Lake 3 by helping us plant a variety of tree seedlings! 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, the area consists of diverse grassland, shrubland and woodland habitats. These habitats are home to a variety of mammals, waterfowl and a host of grassland and forest birds. By planting White Spruce, Paper Birch and Red Osier Dogwood, 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!
