Rare Plant Walk, May 4th

Saturday May 4th, 2024 at 1:00pm - 3:00pm at Lethbridge Indian Battle Park
We want to find out more about rare plants and their communities!

Register for the event here: https://forms.gle/DBRJurDminHA3sV68.

We will meet at the Lethbridge Nature Reserve and walk along the Coal Banks Trail for 1km, stopping to take photos of plants and learning about their ecological and cultural significance. We will then turn around after ~1km and return to the starting point.

All you will need is a smartphone with a camera and a good pair of shoes. The photos you take of any plants can be uploaded to iNaturalist to participate in the Rare Plants of Alberta Project. We suggest downloading iNaturalist, creating an account, and joining the Rare Plants of Alberta iNaturalist project ahead of time.

The data collected during community plant walks will be used in research at the University of Calgary to investigate the relationships between rare plants and their communities in Alberta.

We look forward to seeing you there!
