Helping out on Husavik

Husavik Coastal Wetlands

Husavik Coastal Wetlands

On July 27, 2019, a group of passionate volunteers gathered at the Nature Conservancy of Canada’s (NCC’s) Husavik Coastal Wetlands property. This property is the newest NCC project in the Interlake Natural Area. This volunteer event helped NCC staff develop a species list for the property, which will then be used for the baseline inventory and eventually the Property Management Plan. At the end of the day, volunteers discovered over 100 species of plants and animals on the property, and the group survey time was equivalent to 11 days of staff time!

The Husavik Coastal Wetlands Property is NCC’s first property on the shores of Lake Winnipeg. Coastal wetlands play a vital role in controlling the flow of water and nutrients into the lake. NCC is proud to have conserved this property to maintain its ecological value.

NCC would like to thank the volunteers for their enthusiasm and dedication to the surveys. We also thank the East Interlake Conservation District for partnering with us for critter dipping.

Funding for this event has been provided by the Conservation Trust, a Manitoba Climate and Green Plan Initiative delivered by the Manitoba Habitat Heritage Corporation.
