A project which the Canadian Wildlife Federation WILD Group is underway. A COVID initiative featuring little trail messages introduces this youth group – young men and women between 14-17 who have come out to the afforestation area and walked along the trails.
Sadly some of the signs the teenagers have worked hard on all winter long have come down. The initiative was a part of a unique safe COVID project. If you see any of the signs down, please place them at the benches area east of the SW dog park and they will return to finish up their project – which will include an online component. Thank you so much for your help as the CWF initiative takes shape for the afforestation areas east of the SW OLRA.
A large afforestation area welcome goes out to a new group who loves the forest. The dog walkers, cyclists, wedding parties, dog photographers, astronomers, nature lovers are all welcoming people, and it is great that the teenagers are learning about the afforestation areas, and enjoying the trails and man-made woodlands created on the prairies.
