We regularly work with and support some wonderful organizations. Some of those are listed below. This work has included attending garden shows, hosting workshops, or working together to conserve native species. We love to spread the word about native plants and their benefits to our environment.
The Alberta Native Bee Council is a great promoter of, and resource for, native bees. They care about bees native to our region and offer scientific and conservation info about them and much more.
The Alberta Native Plant Council helps with stewardship, native plant education, and conservation. They hold interesting events and promote botanical literature. Membership with ANPC helps support important work with native plants to continue.
We are very proud to be a Bee Partner with Bee City Canada. Native plants are natural allies of diverse indigenous animal species, including bees, and we aim to do our part to protect declining populations.
Buffalo Rock Tipi Camp is a riparian zone in the Oldman River valley within traditional Piikani territory. Visible from Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, a UNESCO world heritage site, Buffalo Rock is habitat to many plant and animal species. Its location is of cultural significance to the Niitsitapi. Educational and community events are hosted there, as well as the annual Peigan Friends Along the River Fish Rescue. Harley Bastien, whose family has stewarded this land for generations, will be leading a series of ecological restoration projects there on an ongoing basis.
