In 2002 SOS launched an awareness and fundraising campaign to purchase the Seine River forest known as Bois-des-Esprits, in order to protect it from bulldozing and development. Thanks to SOS members and many generous donors from across Canada including the Province of Manitoba ($930,000) and the City of Winnipeg ($1.6 million+), the four-year campaign succeeded in protecting the entire 82-acre forest for future generations to enjoy and cherish. SOS remains committed to ensuring that the valuable investment made in Bois-des-Esprits by the community will be safeguarded for years to come.

    • Sorry Bob. We do not provide milkweed plants. You can purchase them from Prairie Originals. They also supply native plants to a number of outlets around the city.
