Description

The Saskatchewan Prairie Conservation Action Plan (SK PCAP) Partnership brings together 30 agencies and organizations representing producers, industry, provincial and federal governments, environmental non-government organizations, research and educational institutions working towards a common vision of prairie and species at risk conservation in Saskatchewan.

The 5th Native Prairie Restoration/Reclamation Workshop will focus on Reclaiming Spaces, Restoring Species to promote the exchange of knowledge between the sectors/industries involved in native prairie restoration across North America. The two day workshop will include expert speakers, full break-out sessions dedicated to individual sectors, a trade show and an academic poster session. There will be a hands-one case study about Restoration and Reclamation of Riparian Areas, Restoration and Reclamation with a First Nations Perspective and Restoration and Reclamation in an Urban Setting.

  • Industry and Utilities

The aim of this workshop is to bring all of these stakeholders together to exchange knowledge, share lessons learned and address issues in reclaiming spaces and restoring species.
