Not all pine trees are created equal when it comes to fending off their mortal enemy, the mountain pine beetle. Article by Bev Betkowski, December 16, 2019, Folio Read Article
Dear Members of La Société des Amis de la Plantation Bugnet/ Friends of the Bugnet Plantation Society,
The date for this year’s Alberta Culture pop up event is Friday September 27, 2019 from 10 am -6 pm. The activities for this day would be bilingual talks given by knowledgeable volunteers, including a forester, an historian, a Bugnet Rose expert, and a literary historian. We will have a guest lecturer to give a talk on one of these topics. There will be examples of the trees, and roses and pine cones on display. We will be giving out greeting cards, and business card/ book marks and brochures with membership forms, depicting the roses and other resource images to people that are interested in any of the various aspects of the Plantation Bugnet. There will be an ongoing power point presentation of photos of the work that has been done so far on the preservation of this historical resource and the issues that require attention.
It is free admission and there will be Refreshments! Public is Welcome! The location is La Société Généalogique du Nord Ouest 102 8627 91 Street La Cité Edmonton
