Meeting Lake 3, Saskatchewan
Habitat Restoration

Come out and help us plant White Spruce, Paper Birch, and Red Osier Dogwood as part of our restoration plan on Meeting Lake 3! Located within the Boreal Transition Ecoregion, this area consists of diverse grassland, shrubland and woodland habitats. These habitats are home to a variety of mammals such as Moose and American Black Bear, a host of grassland and forest birds, and waterfowl. In certain areas, this property has been cleared of trees and other vegetation and suffers from fragmentation and wetland loss. Help us bring back this property 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 and add your car, or join a car. There’s also a wait list feature if there’s no car listed yet where you’re traveling from. Happy travels!
