Heads up people ahole alert! There is a yahoo driving a older model, single cab, light blue 1/2 ton. He likes to race down Farmers rd. and spray rocks. He did that the other day to Barry and I. He tried again today to do it to me but I saw him coming up from behind me so I kept ahead of him. Not sure if he lives in the area or is working at the Sports-plex.

Volunteer Seed Collecting
Join the Living Prairie Museum for native seed collecting in some of Winnipeg's prairie habitats. Collecting seeds helps us improve genetic diversity in our restorations. Volunteers learn about our efforts to produce native seeds as well as sustainable harvesting practices. You can also keep some of the seeds you collect.
New location - Volunteers have the opportunity to harvest native seeds from our seed plots in St. Norbert. See rows of native grasses and wildflowers and learn how these seeds are used throughout Winnipeg. The location of our seed plots will be provided upon registration.
Please call the museum to register.
