A working ranch open to the public in the southwest corner of Saskatchewan has opened a new visitors centre.
Dale Gross with the Nature Conservancy of Canada says the Old Man on His Back prairie conservation area is near the Grasslands National park and the Cypress Hills grasslands.
He says it is a working ranch, designed to showcase the positive relationship between agricultural use and land conservation.
The 13 thousand acre ranch has grazing cattle and bison, as well as numerous wild animals.
The interpretive centre is open Saturdays, Sundays and statutory holidays 9 am to 5 pm, from mid-May to early October.
A special 20th anniversary celebration of the establishment of the conservation area will be held June 17th and 18th.
