Monthly Meetings

Since the University of Saskatchewan remains closed to the public and with ongoing public health concerns, we will no longer be having live in-person general meetings but will move online to virtual presentations. These meetings will still include announcements from the president. If anyone has an announcement or notice, please contact the president at least 2 days before the scheduled general meeting, which is often the third Thursday of the month. For security purposes and ease of distribution, we will be sending the Zoom information for our general meetings to current members (who have registered an email) only. Please remind previous members to renew their membership and encourage new interested members to join us on this year’s learning experiences. We also continue to have field trips available to members only and by contacting the respective leaders.
