Fanfare, please! Go wild for the winners of the NatureCity Awards!

The NatureCity Awards are offered biannually by Wild about Saskatoon (the group who organize the NatureCity Festival) to recognize Saskatoon residents who advocate for the conservation and restoration of natural areas in and around Saskatoon. The Awards also honour people and projects that promote a relationship of belonging, connection and care between local residents and the Nature that surrounds us.

One award is made in each of three categories.

  • Individual
  • Community Initiative
  • Business


Nominees must:

  • Be a resident of Saskatoon or surrounding area.
  • Not be a current member of the Wild about Saskatoon steering committee.
  • Not have received this award in the past.

A round of applause for our previous winners!
