A Gathering of Prairie Gardeners

Royal Saskatchewan Museum

Find out how native praire plants can benefit your garden and how you can take an active role in preserving diverse communities of plant and animal species that are native to the Prairies. Discover what a Greener Greenspace is and how you can make your garden an oasis for you and be part of the "growing" movement creating Butterflyway havens for pollinators and wildlife. Presented by Gail Fennell of Nature Regina.


Gail Fennell's fascination with native plant species began 15 years ago when volunteering with the Edmonton Native Plant Society. With ENPS’ positive mentoring, Gail organized a community-supported project that successfully introduced native forbs and grasses to a stormwater catchment area in her neighbourhood. Since moving to Regina in 2017, Gail organized a five-year volunteer project rejuvenating the Nature Regina garden at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum to become a showcase for native plant species that grow best in Regina, highlighting the diversity of beneficial insects and wildlife that depend on these plants in a city. Gail's current plans use native plants, fruit-bearing trees and shrubs to create a pollinator corridor and food foraging forest that will also support migratory birds to safely pass through Regina.
