About the Event

The Nature Regina native plant garden at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum is 30 years old! Celebrations include speakers in the Auditorium: 

- 11:00 Gail Fennell on prairie gardening

Tours of the Garden will be happening throughout the day. A few children’s craft activities are being organized. If we are very lucky, we might just see a monarch butterfly or two. Come help us celebrate.

Check out the RSM Website for more information. 

ETIQUETTE AND SUGGESTIONS FOR GARDEN TOUR PARTICIPANTS:

1. The event will be identified with a Nature Regina yard sign.

2. Don’t pick the seed. Many gardeners would like to save the seed for birds. Seed may be available from Nature Regina.

3. If the site is a private garden ask permission to take photos. Many Volunteers have been showing their yard all day. Don’t outwear your welcome, leave at the time noted on the schedule. Front yards can of course be viewed outside of official garden hours. Put show respect and stay on the public sidewalk. Stick to the pathways unless the garden caretakers say you can walk on the lawn;

4. If its hot remember a water bottle and hat.

5. If you have children, please monitor them. Do not let them run through the garden beds. No pets in the gardens.

6. Be kind and understanding. Using native plants has a different aesthetic, and success is not measured in garden design elements, but in the

number of insects and birds that come to your yard. We have many types of yards from manicured to wild, from newly planted, to well-established.
