The Endangered Spaces Campaign was launched in Manitoba at the beginning of this decade, with the goal being to protect representative areas of each of our natural regions from resource development. Environmental groups (including the MNS) have been working with the province to achieve that goal. The Manitoba Naturalists Society would like to recognize the contributions of two employees of the provincial Parks Branch – Bill Watkins and Roger Schroeder.
Bill Watkins has been instrumental in developing maps and a landforms analysis for the province to facilitate the identification of areas needing protection, to complete the representative system of protected spaces.
