Celebrating Grassland Conservation at Lonetree Lake
Date and time: 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, November 8
Join us for a special virtual event to celebrate one of the Nature Conservancy of Canada's (NCC’s) newest conservation projects, Lonetree Lake. We’ll share a stunning drone video of the landscape, and you’ll also learn why conserving the area is important from Jennifer McKillop, NCC’s regional vice-president. Other speakers include Marc Spooner, University of Regina Professor, initiator of the Field of Dreams movement, and special guest speaker Elder Joan McArthur of Pheasant Rump Nakota First Nation. We will also share some interesting archeological discoveries, too.
You helped conserve NCC’s 629-hectare Lonetree Lake property, which includes native grassland, seasonal creeks, wetlands and shoreline habitats. Six federally listed species at risk can also be found here: American badger, barn swallow, burrowing owl, loggerhead shrike, northern leopard frog and piping plover.
Thank you for your support! As Marc Spooner said, “This is a special moment where we can say that, together, we helped conserve this area for people and nature.” So, please join us in celebrating the conservation of Lonetree Lake.
