Located on the edge of the Canadian Shield, Manitoba's Whiteshell Provincial Park is known for its rugged terrain, its multitude of lakes and rivers, diverse wildlife and vast expanses of white and black spruce, balsam fir, and tamarack. However, what is less well-known is the fact that commercial clear-cut logging is still allowed to proceed within the park boundaries.

This stunning, but threatened, plant has very particular requirements; climate, suitable habitat and a narrow environmental tolerance limit its distribution. Habitat loss and alteration are important factors that have lead to its imperiled status in Canada.

Promoting pesticide-free farming, and protecting and planting milkweed will help preserve the monarch.

The bulb of this flower is traditionally used by First Nations as a raw spicy snack or cooked as sweet starch, often mixed with salmon roe. Cutting the flowers or digging up their bulbs other than for traditional aboriginal uses is discouraged as this can hinder natural propagation.

This bee has undergone a catastrophic collapse by 99 per cent in the past three decades in Canada. A ban on neonicotinoid pesticides is required if we’re going to give these bees a chance.
