6th Annual Prairie Day at the Alderville Black Oak Savanna

Join Nature Conservancy Canada (NCC) and the Alderville First Nation at the 6th annual Prairie Day on Saturday, September 7th, to celebrate the land, its people and their achievements in the Rice Lake Plains Natural Area. Everyone is welcome at this family-oriented eco-event Saturday September 7th from 10am-4pm at the Alderville Black Oak Savanna west of Roseneath, Ontario.

We invite everyone to come out and join us for a day of family fun, says Todd Farrell, conservation biologist with NCC. We will showcase the Alderville Black Oak Savanna and NCC properties and help you learn more about the habitat and the natural beauty of Canada’s easternmost prairie.

The Rice Lake Plains is a spectacular tallgrass prairie landscape perched on the top of the Oak Ridges Moraine. The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) has worked for more than a decade with its conservation friends and partners to protect and restore this rare ecosystem.

The whole family will enjoy a variety of activities and live entertainment, including tallgrass prairie tours, music by Ken Whiteley and other artists, Sciensational Sssnakes, bird banding, nature workshops, traditional foods, demonstrations of Indigenous practices, storytelling, face painting, kids activities and more!
