A wonderful portrayal of the cultural and geologic history of the Prairies ranging from the first peoples, the Plains Cree to David Thompson's early explorations to early mixed agricultural practices and settlement. This unique saline closed watershed has been a draw to scientists for over a century. Redberry’s unexpected chemistry is only part of what makes this biosphere reserve an excellent natural laboratory for the students of the University of Saskatchewan’s School of Environment and Sustainability today. Despite its unique natural environment, the small rural population numbers have declined and the constant struggle to be economically viable lives right alongside a staunch determination to protect the environment the people call home.
