A Packing List for Praire Climate
Praire summers are usually warm and dry. High temperatures range from 15 C (60 F) in May to the mid-30s C (90-95 F) in July and August. We average a lot of sunshine and nights tend be cool. However, if it rains the temperature can drop and nights can be cold. The ground will also be damp so we encourage participants to prepare for rainy days always.
Unless otherwise stated by Self-sufficiency is a foundational component that we develop in our programs and projects. We encourage all participants in every program to be self-sufficient and pack to have their needs met. We strive to respect land in all aspects and encourage participates to avoid single use plastics. Praire Livelihood strives to have a no-plastic policy, where we try to stay away from non-compostables. If you smoke cigarettes we request not dispose of your buts on the ground, pack them or burn them in the fire. We also maintain a no drug and alcohol policy while on a land based access, in a camp, or on a project. We also practice leave no trace, and all garbage, gear, and miscellaneous items will be taken and not be left on the land.
All participants are encouraged to care of your gear and keep things together during the duration of all programs. If traveling collectively, you can also pack collectively. Please check with project leader for any additional materials that may be needed.
