Today's hike is an amble on one of the five trails at Beaver Creek Conservation Area.
[1-Banks of Beaver Creek]
Beaver Creek Conservation Area is located 13 km south of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. It is a sheltered creek and part of the microcosm of the Meewasin Valley, containing one of the few uncultivated short-grass prairie sites in Saskatchewan. There are five self-guided nature trails in this location. “Meewasin” is the Cree word for ‘beautiful’.
