On July 6th - 9th, 10 a.m. - 3 p.m., there will be Leafy Spurge Beetle Collection Field Days at Besant Campground, west of Caronport on Highway #1. All Saskatchewan landowners and Rural Municipality Representatives are invited to come and take part in the collections. Beetles collected can be taken back to your property or RM for release, free of charge, with assistance in packaging the beetles for the trip to their new home. Bring a cooler and ice packs for transporting beetles, sweep nets, water, lunch and long pants. All attendees will be required to practice social distancing and take appropriate precautions to keep everyone safe.

People planning to attend the field days should watch the weather (collection on hot calm days) and contact Joanne Kwansnicki, our area Plant Health Officer, prior to coming to Besant Campground (email: This email address is being protected from spambots.
