To celebrate the season and Canada’s Garden Day, the Lethbridge and District Horticultural Society is sponsoring a tour of the Wild Rose Conservation Site, an area of native grass and flowers on the Milk River Ridge south of Spring Coulee. This is the peek time to see the beauty of our wildflowers. We can admire them in their natural environment, and consider the possibility of growing them in our own gardens. MULTISAR rangeland agrologist and plant expert Lee Moltzahn is our guide.
As we will be walking over uneven ground and some hillsides, participants must have good mobility. Bring a bag lunch, water, sunscreen, bug repellent and your camera. If you are a bird watcher, bring your binoculars, too. Plan for a three-hour walk and to be back in Lethbridge by 2:00 p.m. Our meeting place will be the northwest corner of the parking lot at the Safeway store at Fairway Plaza (Highways #4 and #5.) The car pool will leave at 8:30 a.m. sharp, so please be there in time to sign the required Waiver and Release Form.
PLEASE NOTE: Our guide has requested a limited number of participants, so pre-register ASAP with Penny at 403 380 3809 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
