Experience Sunset and Nightfall at the swale. We will listen for the calls of any night birds and watch for fireflies (weather permitting).
If it is clear, members of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada will set up telescopes for you to do some star-gazing after the walk.
Meet at the swale on Lowe Road. Drive north on Central Ave, turn right on Fedoruk Drive (or Agra Road), turn left onto Lowe Road; NE Swale is next to the slough on the east side of road before reaching the Saskatoon Wildlife Federation building.
