Grasslands in Peril – a public talk by Candace Savage

Candace Savage, best-selling author of Prairie: A Natural History and A Geography of Blood: Unearthing Memory in a Prairie Landscape is giving a public talk that highlights the heritage of the PFRA pastures.

These pastures, more than one million acres of public land, are some of the largest remnants of native prairie and sustainably grazed pasture that we have. They’re valued for environmental, agricultural, recreational, and spiritual reasons. Now, the provincial government is putting them up for sale or lease.

Join Candace as she explains why these grasslands are important – and should matter – to everyone in Saskatchewan. The talk will be beautifully illustrated by a slide presentation of photographs from these vital grasslands.

Thursday, November 22, at 7:00 pm
Education Auditorium, University of Regina
Free parking in lots 13M and 14M
Candace’s talk is a precursor to Friday’s event: Public Pastures, Public Interest, a public forum and discussion on the future of Saskatchewan’s public grasslands.Sponsored by the University of Regina Departments of Biology, Sociology and Geography, Campion College, RPIRG, APAS, and SM Solutions.
