Help protect our shorelines.
FortWhyte Alive’s lake edges are quietly undergoing a magical transformation, thanks to a bit of human effort and some amazing native plants.
Join FortWhyte Alive and Seine-Rat River Conservation District to take part in a hands-on shoreline remediation project on the shoreline of FortWhyte. This skills-based workshop will involve you in installing innovative natural erosion control materials and planting living willow stems. You’ll want to return to FortWhyte to watch the impact of your work change and develop over time.
Join us after the shoreline planting at 1 pm to participate in a willow crown or wreath making craft with our crafting leaders.
