Don't worry if you're not an expert – our team of specialists will be on hand to identify through iNaturalist and verify the species you spot.


This event on Friday April 28 is at 7:00 pm. for a group gathering in George Genereux Urban Regional Park.  Between April 28 and May 1, 2023, we'll be racing against the clock to submit as many observations as possible- you can do this anywhere in Saskatoon and area on your own as well. By participating, you'll be helping us compete for the title of the most biodiverse city, as well as supporting vital conservation research.


But it's not just about the City Nature Challenge competition – it's also a chance to connect with nature and explore the world around us. So come join us, snap some pictures, and help us learn more about the amazing biodiversity that exists in Saskatoon and area.


By coming out to George Genereux Urban Regional Park in Saskatoon, you will help the City of Saskatoon create a master plan  the afforestation areas when the time is right

A bioblitz is a collaborative effort of people - scientists, researchers, naturalists, and community members to explore and document the biodiversity of a particular area. During a bioblitz, participants work together to take pictures of as many organisms, insects, lichen, fungi, plant and animal species as possible in a set amount of time. This is achieved through downloading the free iNaturalist app to your smart phone, and using to take pictures of organisms or to record sounds of birds, squirrels and other animals. The goal of a bioblitz is not only to document the species present in the area, but also to raise awareness about the importance of biodiversity and the need for conservation efforts. It is a fun and educational way to connect with nature, learn about the local ecosystem, and contribute to scientific research.
