The Saskatchewan Pasture School is back for the 10th season, and this year the Saskatchewan Forage Council (SFC) and partners have joined with Native Prairie Appreciation Week and the Society for Range Management to celebrate their 15th annual tour. Attendees will have the option of choosing presentations and field exercises targeting either “producer/rancher and grazing managers” or “professional/agency staff and environmental enthusiasts”.
The purpose of the Native Prairie Appreciation Week (NPAW) is to raise awareness and appreciation of native prairie ecosystems and their importance to Saskatchewan’s provincial environmental and agricultural sectors.
