Location: Forks Market Road, Winnipeg, MB, Canada

On your visit to The Forks, make sure to check out the 1,860-square-metre plot of native prairie vegetation featuring over 150 native plant species found in the tallgrass prairie. Originally covering an area one and a half times the size of Manitoba, 99% of this prairie has now been lost. 

Created back in 1999 as a conservation initiative with the Nature Conservancy of Canada, this plot protects wild grasses and flowers such as the prairie crocus, wild iris, bergamot, and the purple prairie clover. 

Come explore what makes the prairies so magical!
