Meewasin will be hosting a Jane’s Walk through the Northeast Swale. The Swale is an ancient post-glacial channel scar of the South Saskatchewan River and provides an unique assortment of wetlands and native prairie complexes that is home to a wide array of plants and animals. Join local conservationists from Meewasin, Saskatoon Nature Society, Saskatchewan Light Pollution Abatement Committee, and the Swale Watchers to learn about the ecological value of Swale, the challenges facing the site, and what is being done to enhance the biodiversity of the Swale.
