Elk Glen Property, Rossburn, 2008

On July 26th, a joint MAPB/Nature Conservancy of Canada Volunteer event was held at NCC's 800 acre Elk Glen Property near Rossburn, Manitoba. The property is located immediately adjacent to the southern boundary of Riding Mountain National Park. The property’s rolling terrain supports a mix of habitats, from aspen and mixed-wood forest to ponds, wetlands, and streams. Grassland areas exist on some of the property’s hills -- prior to the event it was thought that these may represent remnant native fescue or mixed-grass prairie. NCC’s long- term goals for the property include restoring and maintaining these grasslands. The need for a thorough botanical inventory and ecological assessment of the property, and especially its remnant prairie sites, was identified. The purpose of the MAPB/NCC event was to create a baseline to compare future ecological changes on the property. Prior to any prairie restoration activities, a thorough inventory is a first, critical step.

In advance of the event, MAPB's Liz Punter surveyed the property in June. Her surveys produced an initial list of 109 species, including 2 provincially rare sedges (Carex microptera (S1S2) and Carex hookeriana (S1)). This list grew to 155 confirmed species after the July 26th survey. The presence of Plains Rough Fescue in some of the grassland areas suggests that the property supports fescue prairie - a community type rarely encountered in Manitoba.
