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.

Field trips that take place in the city will continue as planned, but we will be practicing social distancing as much as possible.  Trips that are carpool based will be cancelled, but locations of possible sightings of the species we would see on the trips (such as bluebirds) may be made available to interested members. Carpooling will no longer be arranged at the meeting point for trips just outside of the city, such as the Crocus Trip.  The Golden Eagles will be following the same precautions for their trips in March and April.  If you have any questions regarding these trips please contact the trip leader.  The programming for the Young Naturalists will continue as scheduled, as there is a cap on attendance and the venue offers acceptable space for social distancing.

Please check the SNS website at  https://saskatoonnature.org for specific information and updates about field trips.

Thank you and take care,

Sara Bryson

SNS President
