Details

Help enhance FortWhyte’s shoreline habitat.

Did you know that FortWhyte Alive has an industrial past? Our five lakes are the remains of pits that were excavated by heavy machinery during Canada Cement Company’s clay mining operations, starting in 1911. Bulldozers and other machinery left steep shorelines behind, which are prone to slumping and erosion.

Join us to participate in a hands-on skills-based workshop. Learn how native plants are an essential part of a healthy land and water. Head outside to help build a natural, biodegradable erosion shield along our lakeshore, and to plant willows which hold it all together!

Registration is required to hold your spot for this complimentary program
