The Government of Saskatchewan Proclaims June 13 to 19 as Native Prairie Appreciation Week

Released on June 14, 2021

The Ministry of Environment and Ministry of Agriculture jointly proclaim June 13 to 19, 2021, as Native Prairie Appreciation Week.  The Saskatchewan Prairie Conservation Action Plan (SK PCAP) has a number of activities planned to celebrate the week, including virtual events and contests.  The province's native prairie is a unique ecosystem that provides a number of ecological, social and environmental benefits, as well as habitat for a number of species.

"This week is an opportunity to appreciate native prairie and its crucial role in conserving Saskatchewan's biodiversity," Environment Minister Warren Kaeding said.  "PCAP does a great job of highlighting the importance of Saskatchewan's native prairie for our ecology and our identity as a province."

"Our government recognizes the importance of native prairie as part of a diverse ecosystem," Agriculture Minister David Marit said.  "Saskatchewan's producers are stewards of the land and our ranching sector plays an important role in conserving and managing rangeland around the province.  The sustainable practices of our ranchers promote the ecological health of the native prairie ecosystem."

 "Native Prairie Appreciation Week is a great way to recognize and celebrate the diverse value of the native prairie," SK PCAP Manager Carolyn Gaudet said.  "We want everyone to learn more about one of the most threatened landscapes in the world that occurs right here in Saskatchewan and we have activities and resources to help with that."
