What a wonderful party it was last weekend at Prairie Wind & Silver Sage to celebrate 20 years of engagement, enthusiasm and fun, as we work with our community and Grasslands National Park promoting the conservation of native prairie landscapes while inviting the exploration and appreciation of prairie culture and natural history. Our mission and mandate for 20 years! And also to celebrate another great summer, with senior staff member Madonna Hamel and summer museum assistant Heather Shury, and honorary PWSS staff member Rocky.
Thanks to everyone!
Prairie Wind & Silver Sage will be back in May, 2018 to serve you.
