Protecting the health of the Northeast Swale now that it has the North Commuter Parkway including a bridge and a road running through it. That’s what an information session at the Saskatoon Wildlife Federation building will be about tonight (Tues), beginning at 7. Chair of the Northeast Swale Watchers, Louise Jones, explains that the Swale is one of the largest pieces of unbroken prairie, forest and wetland in the area. It also contains patches of rare fescue and is home to many species of wildlife, large and small. Some wildlife corridors were built under the roads for the smaller animals, but the larger animals, like deer and moose still need to cross the road. The panel of 5 speakers includes a University of Saskatchewan professor talking about monitoring and mitigating the impacts of roads on wildlife, a spokesperson from the City of Saskatoon and a speaker on why protecting the Swale matters.
