Knowledge and Tradition

To wind up our participation in the Nature City Festival, we were honoured to host a presentation by Joseph Naytowhow. Joseph involved everyone in a smudging ceremony, lead us in song and told us stories. He captured the attention of everyone present and acknowledged the age range of the participants. He had us singing, laughing and encouraged everyone to connect with our elders. This presentation was a wonderful way to wrap up the week.

About Prairie Habitat Garden

Our Prairie Habitat Garden is an innovative plan that will contribute to the University of Saskatchewan's historical campus by transforming the close proximity to the Education College building from an underused and deteriorating asset to a thriving environmentally based teaching resource. This project ensures the ecological integrity of our natural and working lands while providing an exceptional educational opportunity for pre-service teachers, teachers, schools, and the general public to learn about preserving and recreating natural ecosystems. Concurrent with the building of this garden, local elementary and high schools will build prairie habitat gardens on their schools' properties. These natural habitat gardens should inspire visitors to create their own habitat gardens.
