Rollin’ it Up at Edenwold!

Event Details

September 29th, 2018, 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Edenwold (Regina), Saskatchewan
Infrastructure / Site Cleanup

Join us on NCC’s Edenwold property to help remove old fencing! Over the last few years, volunteers have been hard at work removing fencing from the property. Old fences provide a danger to wildlife and a potential barrier to movement between areas. If you enjoy spending time outdoors and want some hands-on stewardship experience then please join us at this event! These spaces are vital to birds, ungulates and mammals that will be able to roam more freely across the Edenwold property thanks to your support!

We may also have the opportunity to install bat houses on the property!

If you’d like to carpool to the event, please click here, https://www.groupcarpool.com/t/20yuma to add your car or join a ride going to the event. There is also a wait list feature if there isn’t a ride there yet that works for you. Happy carpooling!

More Information

About Edenwold (Regina)

This 635 acre (257 ha.) complex is located near Qu’Appelle Valley, just 15 km north of the Village of Edenwold. Made up of entirely native grasslands, woodland and wetland habitats, this natural area hosts species such as the Sprague’s pipit, American badger, plains garter snake and the endangered little brown myotis. These properties are known to be some of the most outstanding examples of native grassland and shrubland systems in the province.

What you will be doing

If you enjoy spending time outdoors and want some hands-on stewardship experience then please join us at this event! Not only will you be helping our conservation efforts, but you will get the opportunity to enjoy the day in some beautiful prairie parkland. Fences are an important tool in managing our landscapes, but degraded fences can injure wildlife and create barriers for movement.

Why you will love it

Although this is a challenging task, it will be more than rewarding when you are able to see the pile of wire that you've removed at the end of the day!
