SaskPower contributes to SK-PCAP programs
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.
