President’s Message

September 2019

One of the remarkable aspects of the Saskatoon Nature Society is that there is a vast wealth of knowledge within our membership. Among our members there are biologists, chemists, physicists, botanists, and ornithologists; not to mention the astounding amount of citizen science experience.

The objective of the Saskatoon Nature Society is to promote the appreciation of nature, and encourage a deeper knowledge of it through observation, education and sharing of experience. We are able to accomplish this objective as our educated and experienced membership contribute not only their own knowledge, but also information that has been passed down through the Society from member to member, as well as bringing in others from our community to expand what we know about various species, habitats, conservation, and related successes or concerns that arise.

The main way we get people out in nature to share and expand our knowledge is through our field trips and monthly speaker series. This Fall and Winter we again have much to look forward to. Field trips we can expect are multiple bioblitzes at the North East and Small Swales, warbler trips during Fall Migration, a geese and crane trip, the very popular whooping crane trip in October, owl banding, bird counts, and the owl adventures in the winter. The monthly program speaker series this year is expected to include presentations on moose on farmland, amphibians, landscapes, pond water microbes, and grassland management.

As always, I encourage you to stay engaged with what is going on in our community. Join us on field trips, outings, and at the monthly meetings; and when you are at these events, ask questions and utilize this wealth of knowledge that we are so lucky to have, and celebrate the amazing people who make it all possible.

I would also like to note with great sadness that we have lost a few members of our Society over the last months, but their passion for nature and contributions to the Society will live on and be celebrated through current and future members.
