  4. If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, this FREE event is for you!

On June 8th from 10am – 2pm, join the North Saskatchewan Watershed Alliance (NSWA), the Town of Vegreville, and the Agroforestry Woodlot Extension Society (AWES) for a River Revival in Vegreville!

  • LEARN how native trees and wildflowers improve the riverbank and provide habitat for birds and pollinators. AWES and the NSWA will talk about “Eco-buffer 101”, and “What’s in Your Watershed?”
  • PLANT an “eco-buffer” of seedlings at our Vegreville demonstration site. (Demonstration provided. Bring gardening gloves and a spade if you have one. Extra spades will be available.)
  • CELEBRATE the enhancement of our local river site through family-friendly and kids’ activities and refreshments. (Food available for a small cost)
