Please register with Marilyn Latta at 253-9245 or ahead of time so you can be notified of the date, which will depend on weather and flowering stage of the spurge.  Car pooling will be arranged as needed.

Monday July 1 or Sunday July 7

Help the Habitat Committee count and pull out leafy spurge in study plots on one of our prairies.  We'll meet at 9 a.m. at the Loewen Prairie (4 km east of Tolstoi on PR209), work for 2-3 hours, then eat lunch at the interpretive trail and go for a plant walk. It's a great way to help preserve the tall grass prairie and learn more about prairie plants at the same time. If the timing is right, the endangered White Fringed Orchids will be in bloom.
