SNS COVID-19 Statement

Due to the current advice given to reduce the spread/impact of COVID-19, the Saskatoon Nature Society will be making some changes in the next couple of months regarding our programming and field trips to assure the safety of our members and the public.

As per the announcement from the University of Saskatchewan on March 13 which stated that all non-essential events hosted on campus will be cancelled, our Annual General Meeting and Member’s Slide Night will be postponed. Other arrangements will be determined for the transition of Board members and delivery of the President’s report. In addition, our April general meeting/speaker program will be cancelled, as well as the Birding Workshops scheduled to take place at the University in March and April.

All field trips are cancelled through at least mid-May. Stay tuned for updates

Thank you and take care,

Sara Bryson

SNS President

May Bird Count – May 30

We invite experienced birders who are healthy and not in quarantine to participate in the May Bird Count on Saturday, May 30. In order to follow COVID safe self-isolation steps, we plan to assign different birding sectors (or sub-sectors) to each individual or family so that they can participate on their own without any in-person contact with other participants. Birding Teams and car sharing outside family groups are not consistent with current public health recommendations.

If you wish to participate, please email trips@saskatoonnature.org and indicate your full name(s); phone number and email address. Please also indicate what hours you plan to participate, your preference (if any) for a rural or urban sector and whether you will have access to a car or wish to participate on foot near your residence.

John Patterson will be compiling the count. If you have questions, please phone Stan Shadick at 306-652-5975.
