Success at White Butte
A proposal to build a golf course in the south east corner of the White Butte Trails Recreation Site was stopped by the actions of many concerned citizens speaking out and politicians who listened. Conservationist Trevor Herriot, the Regina Ski Club, the Regina Wildlife Federation, Public Pastures – Public Interest, and several individuals all spoke out. They were concerned that one of the very few remaining bits of almost-native prairie would be destroyed.
Read about it in White Butte golf course controversy.
