Sun. Apr 27th (1-2pm) - Satellite Tracking of Snowy Owls. Snowy Owls are the largest raptors of the high Arctic. In Saskatchewan we are lucky to see these majestic owls, often on fence posts or telephone poles, as they watch and listen for a winter snack. Marten Stoffel has been studying many owl species for decades and he is involved with the Saskatchewan-Norwegian Satellite Tracking Program. He recently traveled to Siberia as part of his research. With a lengthy Bio he'll have some very interesting information to talk about along with fun stories. This is a FREE event for all ages. Door Prizes!

Wild about Saskatoon is an informal collective of nature-lovers who began to meet in the winter of 2012-13. We are madly in love with the beauty and diversity of the living world wherever we find it, especially within city limits. Our goal is to foster a fresh, everyday connection between the residents of Saskatoon and the nature that envelops us, in the city as everywhere else. We want to nurture a civic culture where respect for the living world is routinely reflected in our collective and individual decisions. A city is not just built; it is also planted. The City of Saskatoon provides habitat not only for humans but also - wonderfully - for hundreds, maybe even thousands, of species of plants, insects, birds and animals, from bumblebees to bats and from ducks to otters. Without plants to produce oxygen, we could not breath. Without insects to pollinate our gardens, we'd lack nourishing food. Without birds and animals to raise our spirits, we would be intolerably alone. Without the shining waters of the South Saskatchewan River, our lives, in incaluable ways, would be barren. Nature does not begin where the sidewalk ends. Wild about Saskatoon is an open invitation to experience your inner, urban nature.Wild about Saskatoon NatureCity Festival | Festival 2014
