Young Naturalists

Welcome to the Saskatoon Young Naturalists!

Young Naturalists’ activities are open to all ages and offer nature-based activities designed for families. Content is geared towards the 5- to 11-year-old range. We operate on the belief that children’s (and parents’) learning is enhanced when the parents/guardians are present. Parent/Guardian supervision is required for all Young Naturalists Programs.

Upcoming Programs:
Christmas Bird Count for Kids: Tuesday, December 28
Tracks and Scats: January 8th at 1:00 p.m.
Owl Pellets: March 12th at 1:00 p.m.
Bird House: April 9th at 1:00 p.m.

To register for a program, or for more information, send an e-mail to indicating which program (or programs) you want to sign up for and indicate the number of children. Space is limited on most programs, so advanced registration is required. Registration is on a first-come basis. You can register at any time.

The Saskatoon Young Naturalists began in 1968. Young Naturalists is a joint program with the Saskatoon Nature Society and the Saskatoon Zoo Society. Thanks to funding from the Saskatoon Nature Society, programs are free of charge unless otherwise noted.

Each Young Naturalists activity is an individual activity, separate from the other activities. You must register for each activity separately if you want to participate in multiple activities; however, you can register for more than one activity at one time.

Due to enrollment restrictions, the Young Naturalists Program is normally unable to accommodate groups (the program is designed for families). If you have a special interest group (such as Scouts, 4-H, school group, etc.) please email to arrange a special program for your group. There may be a charge for this programming.
