The Society of the Grasslands Naturalists honours and acknowledges that we live and work on the traditional territories of the First Nations People of Treaty 7, Treaty 4 and Metis people who share a deep history with this land.
We recognize and respect cultural heritages and relationships to the land. We extend our hands in peace and friendship to all indigenous peoples who have made these places their homes since time immemorial, as we forge together towards a relationship of reconciliation, respect and healing.
