In fall 2022, Meewasin piloted a unique experience to showcase the importance of native prairie and the beauty of local food. This experience was such a success in 2022 that we are bringing it back in September 2023!
Meewasin’s Grazing Dinners begin with a private hike through the native prairie at Beaver Creek Conservation Area with Meewasin’s Resource Conservation Officer and Prairie Conservation Award recipient Renny Grilz. Guests are immersed in the sights, smells and sounds of the landscape, and learn why the Saskatchewan prairie is so important.
Following the hike, guests are treated to a 3-course dinner prepared by Chef Scott Dicks and the team at Odla featuring Saskatchewan beef. Odla is proud to be a farm-direct restaurant, which means all ingredients they feature are grown or raised within 2 hours of Saskatoon!
Finally, during dessert, guests get a chance to get up close to a live sheep and stock dog demonstration with Shepherd Jared Epp and hear about how we use targeted grazing to manage prairie ecosystems in the river valley.
Meewasin is grateful to the Saskatchewan Cattlemen’s Association and RBC Tech for Nature for their support of these unique one-of-a-kind experiences.
This is a small group experience and is limited to 24 people per event. One ticket provides admission for one person. 19+ ONLY.
Due to the natural features of the trail network, this experience is not considered accessible for guests with limited mobility.
