June 1st Plant Walk

Hello everyone,

Registration for our June 1st Plant Walk is now open! 🤸 🌼 🤠

Saturday June 1st, 2024 at 1:00pm - 3:00pm at Naapi's Garden

We will meet at Naapi's Garden, William's place of residence on Kainai First Nation. This land was previously cultivated, but after a controlled burn, treatment for invasive species, and wildflower seeding, it has been restored and now hosts many native wildflowers and pollinators! We will walk around, taking photos of plants, and learning their cultural significance.

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.

Register through the form here.

I look forward to seeing you there!
