SaskPower con­trib­utes to SK-PCAP pro­grams

Prairie Post (East Edition) - - Farm News -

The Saskatchew­an Prairie Con­ser­va­tion Action Plan (SK PCAP) is pleased to an­nounce the gen­er­ous spon­sor­ship con­tri­bu­tion of $25,000 from SaskPower to­wards the de­liv­ery of SK PCAP En­vi­ron­men­tal Ed­u­ca­tion Pro­grams. The spon­sor­ship con­tri­bu­tion also in­cludes an ad­di­tional $11,000 grant for the pe­riod 2020-2021.

SaskPower has been Saskatchew­an's lead­ing elec­tric­ity sup­plier since 1929, with the vi­sion of "Pow­er­ing Saskatchew­an to a cleaner en­ergy fu­ture through in­no­va­tion, per­for­mance and ser­vice." SaskPower has been an of­fi­cial part­ner of SK PCAP through a Mem­o­ran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing since 2003 and a long­time sup­port of SK PCAP pro­grams. This financial in­vest­ment show­cases SaskPower's on­go­ing ded­i­ca­tion and commitment to the en­vi­ron­ment and ed­u­ca­tion in Saskatchew­an.

Since 1998, the SK PCAP Part­ner­ship has brought to­gether na­tive prairie stake­holder groups rep­re­sent­ing pro­duc­ers, in­dus­try, pro­vin­cial & federal gov­ern­ments, non-govern­ment or­ga­ni­za­tions and re­search & ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions, all work­ing to­wards a com­mon goal of na­tive prairie con­ser­va­tion within Saskatchew­an (www.pcapsk.org).

The SK-PCAP has a long-stand­ing his­tory of de­vel­op­ing and de­liv­er­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal and agri­cul­tural ed­u­ca­tion and aware­ness pro­grams across the province.

"The gen­er­ous financial sup­port from SaskPower will be used to en­hance our ed­u­ca­tion and aware­ness pro­grams, al­low­ing us to reach new au­di­ences" says Diego Steinaker, in­terim SK PCAP Man­ager.

More specif­i­cally, it will con­trib­ute to improve the SK PCAP's on­go­ing Na­tive Prairie Speaker Se­ries about species at risk in the province, and the Youth Ed­u­ca­tion Pro­grams "Tak­ing Action for Prairie" and "Adopt a Rancher" (https://www.pcap-sk.org/forteach­ers).

The fund­ing will also be uti­lized for SK PCAP's an­nual Na­tive Prairie Ap­pre­ci­a­tion Week events and Agri­bi­tion dis­play, and the organizati­on of the 2020 Na­tive Prairie Restora­tion and Recla­ma­tion Work­shop.

The goal of these pro­grams is to cre­ate aware­ness among the pub­lic about the importance of prairie ecosys­tems and the value of ranch­ing and agri­cul­ture play for habi­tat and wildlife in our province.
