Botany Alberta 2019
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Botany AB has been postponed until further notice. We will send out a notification when further details are available.
Please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
Plans are underway for visits to two properties this year on June 22 and 23, 2019 with more details to be available soon as they are finalized.
The first is tentatively planned for Saturday, June 22, 2019 to Bunchberry Meadows Conservation Area
“Bunchberry Meadows is a very special place. Located approximately 30 kilometres outside of downtown Edmonton, this 640-acre (260-hectare) conservation site is made up of old-growth forests, open meadows and wetlands. The forest supports jack pine, which is habitat for northern flying squirrels, porcupines and long-tailed weasels. The water and willows shelter a variety of species as small as tiger salamander and as large as moose.
Owned in partnership with the Nature Conservancy of Canada and the Edmonton and Area Land Trust, Bunchberry Meadows is open to the public year-round for foot access ” (from the NCC webpage). This property is located about 14km southwest of Edmonton.

Our second trip is planned to Nisku Native Prairie Reserve, Sunday June 23, 2019
Nisku Prairie is a 31- acre remnant of aspen parkland protected as municipal reserve, “Nisku Native Prairie Park Reserve,” by Leduc County since 1994. It is located south of Edmonton in Leduc County east of the Nisku Industrial Area and south of Secondary Highway 625.
