Conservation Grazing Program

Through the support of funding from Environment Canada, and Species at Risk, Meewasin is please to be working with Sue Michalsky from the Quarter L Ranch of Eastend, Saskatchewan to have nearly 300 sheep grazing at the Northeast Swale through until the end of September.

Conservation grazing is a cost effective means of maintaining large natural areas like the Meewasin Northeast Swale as it mimics natural disturbance regimes to promote biodiversity. This grazing process will help enhance the Meewasin Northeast Swale for grassland bird habitat through the reduction of non-native grasses, invasive species and shrub cover.
