Urban Prairie

familyt regional library


An Urban Prairie oasis is behind the Gaynor Family Regional Library. Some three acres of the urban prairie was planted in 2014, a site of recreated tallgrass prairie habitat, adding to the few thousand acres remaining in Manitoba. Space acts as a natural system of bio-swales that were introduced to direct water to the existing natural drainage creating a water run-off management system for this Green Globe building.

Over fifty different grass and flowering plant species native to the tallgrass prairie community, along with interpretive signage depicting the ecosystem, will inspire ways to mitigate habitat loss. Local farmers helped provide the composted biomass for the soil used in the Urban Prairie project.
