Hawthorn, Beak 01 3 x 4

After at least ten years of Flower Focus, thank you Eileen Ford, we are making a temporary shift to Insect Focus.

Beginning on March 21, 2018 through to the end of 2018 and maybe beyond, depending on the response, we will be focusing on Insects.

Please join us for these interesting meetings. Check the Calendar of Events for information.


Interesting plant sightings:

Small Round-leaved Orchid (Amerorchis rotundifolia var. lineata), double-flowered  Sparrow’s egg Lady’s Slipper (Cypripedium passerinum), variation of Fairy Slipper (Calypso bulbosa)

Native Plant Garden

RDRN has funded a native plant garden at the Kerry Wood Nature Centre. It is located to the south of the main doors. RDRN is indebted to the Red Deer Garden Club for their tireless work in maintaining the garden. To see plants located in the garden and information about them, please click here.

Common Alberta Trees

Several years ago, RDRN planted representative specimens of common Alberta trees at the Kerry Wood Nature Centre. To see information about some common trees of Alberta, please click here.

Ever wonder about all those flower seed packages for sale? We did and so, RDRN in cooperation with Ellis Bird Farm bought 10 different packages. We planted them to see what would grow. You may be surprised. For more information, please Click here.
