Prairie Alphabet Project
This project began in 2021 and took almost two years to come to life. The inspiration came from a desire to learn more about the native prairie or grasslands ecosystem and the plants and animals that depend on it. Native prairie in Saskatchewan is in a precarious state and needs to be protected. Many birds, plants and animals rely on this ecosystem and as it declines, the risk that we may lose these precious species increases. Grasslands is one of the most threatened ecosystems in the world and holds and great cultural, spiritual, recreational, environmental and economic significance.
Fortunately, there are many people and organizations that are working hard to conserve this ecosystem. And there are are many things you can do too!
