Nature Saskatchewan runs the ” Stewards of Saskatchewan” suite of Programs. These programs work with the landowners throughout the province to monitor and support species at risk on the prairies. There are currently 1042 program participants conserving nearly 923,000 acres of habitat for species at risk.
We are raising awareness and engaging communities to share sightings of the Monarch Butterfly in Southeastern Saskatchewan.
We are also looking for landowners in Southeastern Saskatchewan that would be willing to work with Nature Saskatchewan in monitoring milkweed plants on their properties for Monarch eggs, caterpillars and butterflies. If anyone you know has milkweed in their pasture and might be interested in learning more, they can reach us for more information at the contact details on the attached poster.
Nature Saskatchewan has additionally included information about a small swallow type bird; Chimney Swifts, please see attached.
