Green Roof Manitoba


They seem to be everywhere these days, and that can only mean one thing.

The 28,000-square-foot green roof at Ducks Unlimited in southern Manitoba is modeled after the surrounding Oak Hammock Marsh, with lots of short- and medium-size grasses and flowering plants, all native to the area.

To a duck or goose “it looks like habitat,” said Paula Grieef, a naturalist at the Oak Hammock Marsh Interpretive Centre. “We have ducks nesting on the roof every year, and last year for the first time we had a goose.”

They seem to like the native grasses better than the non-native succulents. Well, I never.
