Be a Weed Warrior - Flowering Rush Removal

August 8, 2018 - August 9, 2018

Do you want to meet people, have fun, get some fresh air and help the environment?  Why not join us to help pull invasive flowering rush from a wetland. We will provide the tools - all you have to do is be willing to get your hands dirty. Also, please bring rubber boots or waders if you have them, sunscreen, a hat, plenty of water and a lunch.

The wetland is between Young and Watrous, SK and is the only wetland for hundreds of kilometers with flowering rush, so if we can eradicate it from here we will save much of the province from a potential disaster.

We will meet at the AC Leslie Road turn-off at 9 am and you are welcome to stay as long or as little as you like. To get there, drive on highway #2 approximately 10 km NW from Watrous. You will see a small green sign marking the AC Leslie Road turn-off. There will also be one or more cars parked at the turn-off.

We may be able to offer you a ride if you can't drive out yourself.

Please let us know if you will be attending by contacting us at (306) 668-3940 or

We need to be able to contact you in case of cancellations or changes to our schedule.
