Our mission is to inspire Saskatoon to discover local nature
In one of the largest cities on the Canadian prairies, residents can scramble up sandy riverside paths or forested trails, wade in the flowing river, explore hundreds of wildflowers amidst perennial bunch grass, learn the song of the Western Meadowlark, play beside restored wetlands, thriving gardens and naturalized parks, get lost in a national bird sanctuary, Northeast Swale or urban marsh, bathe in the over 300 days of sun each year, or find refuge under 100-year old elms, towering pines, ash, Amur maples and cherries under an urban forest canopy.
These experiences need not be rare in urban areas. More of us are living in cities than ever before, but that doesn't mean we must lose our access to wild nature, especially in Saskatoon.
Wild about Saskatoon wants to help you access and explore the unique ecology of our urban ecosystem, cultivate awareness, appreciation and understanding that nature is a vital part of our city. We are back to celebrate NatureCity Festival this May 23rd - May 28th, 2017.
NatureCity Festival is your opportunity to explore the vitality of urban nature in our city through experiential events, workshops, dynamic speakers, guided tours, citizen science projects, music, art, performance and more!
