About the Event

Meet at East side of the Caledonian Curling Club.

Join Nature Regina and friends on Summer Wildflower Walk at a re-discovered patch of native prairie right in the city limits. Everyone is invited to this free guided nature walk to see how native plants are thriving on part of a 68 acre piece of city property along Wascana Creek between Lewvan Drive and Sandra Schmirler Way. 

Park on east side of Caledonian Curling Club.

In recent years, naturalists have found a stunning variety of prairie flowers and grasses coming to life each spring on this property, providing refuge for bees and other insects. Meadowlarks, Swainson’s hawks, and Species at Risk including Barn Swallows and Loggerhead Shrikes have also been spotted there.

Come and take a look. Step lightly on the land and let the prairie inspire you.

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.
