Host Water Festival
Friday, June 8th marked the 9th year that the Pembina Valley Conservation District and the La Salle Redboine Conservation District co-hosted the Binney Water Festival at the Binney Corner Nature Preserve.
One of the Conservation District mandates is to provide public education, and there is no better way to do that, than through the Water Festival!
Approximately 210 students and 50 volunteers and local experts gathered at this ‘Oasis” and journeyed through three different ecosystems: marsh, grassland and woodlot which are connected by a 100 foot floating dock.
The event targets the grade four curriculum by offering an interactive, hands-on approach to learning. Students are also challenged to find evidence of plants, animals and other living things along the trails and marsh and are encouraged to discuss some of the adaptations these living things have made in order to survive.
The PVCD would like to acknowledge Enbridge and the Prairie Spirit School Division for sponsoring this event.
