Sat, August 10th

The Manitoba Tall Grass Prairie Preserve will be hosting its annual Prairie Day event on Saturday, August 10, 2019 at the Prairie Shore Interpretive Trail, located three kilometres east of Tolstoi on Provincial Road 209.

Learn about the plants, birds and insects that call the prairie region their home.  A feature speaker will highlight their work on the endangered Poweshiek Skipperling.  The animal ambassadors from The Wildlife Haven Rehabilitation Centre will be on hand and showcase their unique features.

Borrow one of our bug nets or bring your own and go on a bug hunt with an amazing entomologist!  Take in a guided walk to learn about the many wildflowers in bloom.  Or pick up a roasting stick and enjoy baking your own bannock.  Children can do a scavenger hunt, make crafts, or go critter catching.  Take on the Tall Grass Trivia Challenge and you might win a prize!

Admission for the day is $5.00 per adult and no charge for children.  Activities will begin at 10:00 a.m. and wrap up at 3:30 p.m.  There is an on-site canteen that will be open from 10:30 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.  A BBQ lunch will be available from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. – please note, only cash is accepted at this event.  Picnic tables and rustic washrooms are also available on-site. 

Please bring a lawn chair or blanket, sunscreen and insect repellent.  Trail conditions may be wet so rubber boots or a change of footwear is suggested.  All Prairie Day activities will take place rain or shine. 

For more information on this event, please contact Christie at the Manitoba Tall Grass Prairie Preserve at 204-425-3229 or tgpphq@mymts.net.
