July 20th Plant Walk (UPDATED)

Hello everyone,

I’m pleased to announce registration for our July 20th Plant Walk is now open! 🏃‍♂️ 🌿 🚣

Saturday July 20th, 2024 at 1:00pm - 3:00pm at Writing-On-Stone Provincial Park.

We will meet at the Writing-on-Stone PP Visitor's center and walk West along the Hoodoo Trail, stopping to observe plants and look for milkweed and geranium. ❗ Very exciting: this area is one of the only places Green Comet Milkweed has been observed in Alberta on iNaturalist ❗ We will walk part of the trail, keeping an eye out for milkweed, taking photos of other 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.

Hope to see you there!
