Western Spiderwort

Management

Western SpiderwortThere are currently no management initiatives specifically for the western spiderwort in Alberta.  Although it has only been recently discovered in Alberta, annual fluctuations in population and potential habitat loss have increased concern for its continued existence in the province.  Despite ongoing surveys of potential habitat, no other occurrences have been found in Alberta.  Further surveys must be undertaken.  Alberta and Saskatchewan populations are very susceptible to site disturbance because of their small size and restricted distributions.
