Wild About Saskatoon, a Nature City Festival in Saskatoon, runs from May 21-26 and celebrates the wild side of Saskatoon to help create a nature-friendly city.
Saskatoon’s Nature City Festival is a perfect time to explore and connect with the natural world around us. Birds, bugs, animals, wildflowers, grasses, trees and bushes … all await your curious exploration.
Bird life abounds in our neighbourhood. Download the Birdwatcher’s List from Nature Saskatchewan and visit our parks or other sites to see and identify birds making their homes here. Explore the Nature Saskatchewan website for materials to help guide your nature walks. The Saskatoon Nature Society can help you too. Download their butterfly list or dragonflies and damselflies list. These websites offer abundant materials to get you started on your nature explorations.
