Saturday June 24 or Sunday June 25 - Spurge Purge and Plant Walk - Join the Habitat Committee on their annual mission to count and pull out leafy spurge in study plots on one of our prairies. The plan is to meet at 9 a.m. at the Loewen Prairie (4 km east of Tolstoi on PR 209) and 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 like the Western Prairie Fringed Orchid, which may be blooming at this time. The date has been left open to best accommodate the weather and the number of people who would like to attend.
