"Tallgrass Prairie: One of Canada's Most Threatened

Wednesday February 17, 2010
Doors open 7:00 p.m. Start time 7:30 p.m.
Members: $8.00 / per talk

The Alderville Savanna is on the Rice Lakes Plains, with the largest remnant of Tallgrass Prairie in Eastern Ontario. Janine explores the use of prescribed burns and illustrates the spectacular results of this aggressive and effective process to restore nature back to its former glory and promise for a balanced and expanding ecological marvel. The Savanna is home to several provincially rare or uncommon species of plants, including Prairie Buttercup, Bicknell's Frostweed, Sharp-leaved Goldenrod, and Long-stalked and White-haired Panic Grasses.
Janine McLeod is the Natural Heritage Coordinator of the Alderville Black Oak Savanna and Tallgrass Prairie. She has an Hon. B.Sc. in Conservation Biology from Trent University.
