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 on all Young Naturalists’ Programs.

The Saskatoon Young Naturalists’ began in 1968. Click here for our history. Young Naturalists is a joint program with theSaskatoon 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 Naturalist activity is an individual activity, separate from the other activities.  You must register for each activity separately (however you can register for more than one activity at one time).

TO REGISTER  for a program or for more information send an e-mail to saskatoonnaturekids@gmail.com indicating which program (or programs) and 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.

Due to enrolment 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 saskatoonnaturekids@gmail.com to arrange a special program for your group. There may be a charge for this programming.
