Planting the Future: How Conservation Protects More Than the Land 

On this interactive tour you can participate in maintaining biodiversity at an active conservation site by planting native vegetation and experience live Indigenous performances at Wanuskewin Heritage Park, the longest active archaeological dig site in Canada. Meewasin protects ecological, historical, and cultural aspects of the Saskatchewan River Valley through active conservation. There will be opportunities to learn about the importance of these areas to the economy, education, culture, and the environment. Meewasin is a conservation organization that specializes in partnerships with government, business, and public to protect natural habitat within an urban setting. 

Participants will be doing a moderate amount of walking (approximately 1.5 km total over the afternoon) and should dress for the weather. A hat, sunscreen and sensible closed walking shoes are recommended.
