Participants just show up.
Join the thousands of people who take part in a Jane’s Walk now in 212 cities world wide, inspired by the urban activist Jane Jacobs. She knew “vital cities are not helpless to combat even the most difficult problems” and so encouraged people to deeply know the neighbourhoods by walking their city.

Come explore the rich diversity of Saskatoon from past to present through the variety of heritage and multi-cultural themed displays & interactive exhibits throughout the museum.

Message from the Saskatoon Police Services:
The City Police would like to bring your attention to an increase of thefts in the communities of Buena Vista, Nutana as well as the Exhibition areas. This notice is to all of the East Side Community Associations, as this information, although mainly affecting the above noted neighborhoods, would be of interest to all area neighborhoods.
Bicycles, sports equipment, as well as tools are being stolen out of vehicles and outbuildings (detached garages, sheds). Saskatoon Police are noticing that the people responsible for the thefts are wandering around your neighborhoods at night checking door handles of vehicles, and buildings. If any vehicles, or building is found to be unlocked, these people help themselves to whatever property they can get ahold of.
Saskatoon Police Services are requesting that if you have anything of value, anything you don’t want stolen, Please take it into your homes. If you have bikes, please lock the bike up with appropriate bike locks, and then please lock the garage or outbuilding you have it stored in.
A laminated sign – “All Valuables Removed” – can be picked up from Saskatoon City Police, or if you have a group that you think would benefit from such a sign, an officer personally drop some off. They are used to place in your vehicle to deter people breaking in.
We are all responsible for the security of our homes, and property, and working together we can prevent crime.

Saskatoon Cycles in partnership with the City of Saskatoon is pleased to host Bike to Work Day YXE 2018
About Bike to Work Day:
Bike to Work Day (BTWD) is an annual event that promotes and celebrates the bicycle as a viable mode of transportation. BTWD has now grown into a widespread event with countless bicyclists taking to the streets in an effort to get commuters to try bicycling to work as a healthy and safe alternative to driving alone.
The Commuter Stations are the backbone of Bike to Work Day and brighten what for many is a routine commute, and each year we aim to have a number of Bike to Work Day Commuter Stations all over Saskatoon.
Host a Commuter Station:
If you or your business or organization is interested in hosting or co-hosting a BTWD Commuter Station please contact our BTWD co-ordinator, email@example.com. Co-hosting with other local businesses or organizations allows for friendly collaboration, assistance with costs and more human power to run your station. Commuter Station possibilities are endless and could include snack and beverage stations, giveaways, discounts for cyclists, bike maintenance and more.

Celebrate the assets and diversity of nature in Saskatoon and deepen your understanding, appreciation and access to urban nature through experience, exploration and education.
We respectfully acknowledge that NatureCity Festival is situated on Treaty 6 territory and traditional lands of First Nations and Métis people.
Join us on the trails, the rivers, the sidewalks, and the flyways to celebrate Saskatoon’s wild side.
Event Name: Nature Needs Half | NatureCity Festival Presents Harvey Locke
Date: Friday May 25 2018
Venue: Aden Bowman Castle Theatre Saskatoon
Description: All Ages
Wild about Saskatoon is delighted to announce that Dr. Harvey Locke will be the keynote speaker at this year’s NatureCity Festival, May 22-27, 2018.
Harvey Locke is one of Canada’s and the world’s most respected voices for the protection of wildness. And he is coming to Saskatoon, as chair of the Nature Needs Half movement, to deliver an urgent message.
The Nature Needs Half movement begins with the recognition that nature needs sufficient space to function properly for the benefit of all life on our planet. In most ecosystems, science demonstrates that at least half of the region must be protected to ensure the Earth’s resilience in the face of environmental change. We only have to look around us or listen to the news to know that conservation efforts to date have not been sufficient to sustain life on Earth.
What does the knowledge mean for those of us who live along the banks of the South Saskatchewan River? How do we transform the bold vision of Nature Needs Half into an achievable strategy?
Harvey Locke will be addressing these questions at a public event at the Castle Theatre in Aden Bowman Collegiate from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on the evening of May 25. We hope that you will be able to join us.
Harvey is a conservationist, writer, and photographer, and worked closely with First Light Films on Wild Ways. He is a recognized global leader in the field of parks, wilderness and large landscape conservation. He is a founder of the Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative and of the Nature Needs Half Movement. His work has been featured in films and television programs in many countries and his photography has been used in numerous publications. His popular writing has been published in English, French and Spanish, he has co-curated art shows about Nature in major North American museums, and he has written many peer reviewed articles. Named one of Canada’s leaders for the 21st century by Time Magazine, he has received many awards for his work including IUCN’s Fred M. Packard International Parks Merit Award for outstanding service to the worlds protected areas. He lives in Banff National Park, Canada.

Saskatoon Doors Open is currently looking for volunteers to participate in the event for 2.5 hours! The job requires volunteers to help people with any questions, pointing them in correct directions, and make suggestions as to where their next stop should be! If you or others you may know would be interested in helping out with this event please let them know!
Follow this link to sign up to volunteer: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DoorsOpenVolunteer
Contact Kim Ali at 306.652.1400 x 1 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
What is Doors Open Saskatoon? A biennial event that offers access to architecturally, historically, culturally, and socially significant buildings in Saskatoon. Doors Open Saskatoon provides an opportunity to explore buildings not normally open to the public in an organized and professional manner.
What types of buildings are involved? Properties involved in past years range from our new police station to our oldest building, the Marr Residence and everything in between. The buildings showcase many architectural styles including new buildings with LEED technology. Schools, churches, commercial enterprises – anyone who wants to tell the history of their building or show off a particular renovation, change of use, or special feature can join the tour.
How are building chosen? Building selection is overseen by a panel of architects, designers and community leaders who volunteer their time. The committee reviews and selects building based on a theme — this year’s theme is “Canada 150 – Eras of Building in Saskatoon”.
What happens June 4? The public will tour as many buildings as they wish. A visit may include an interpreted tour of the building, describing its place in our history, the period style and construction methods / materials or its purpose in the past and today. As well, interpreters may weave stories about interesting characters that owned, operated, or had specific connections to each building.
As a volunteer what is your commitment? Before the event, volunteers agree to attend a volunteer training to learn what to expect on Doors Open Saskatoon day, which building they are assigned to, and more. The day of the event, volunteers work for one or two 2.5 hour shift(s) on Sunday, June 4, 2017 sometime between 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM.

Jane’s Walk – May 5-6, 2017
Every year on the first weekend in May cities across the world hold Jane’s Walks to encourage people to familiarize themselves with the places where they live work and play. This year we are keen to feature a diversity of neighbourhoods.
You don’t need to be an expert to create and lead a walk. A Jane’s Walk is a walking conversation where participants are encouraged to contribute to the discussion along the way. The walk can be a tour of something that makes your neighbourhood unique or it can be a study of an area that you are trying to change. It can focus on history, nature, community, play, religion, traffic, gardening, or anything else that you feel passionate about.
Participate in hundreds of author readings, discussions, and activities, and shop in a vibrant Exhibitor Marketplace. There’s plenty to see and do for the whole family.
Discover Canada’s Best Authors:
Since 2010, The Word On The Street Saskatoon has proudly hosted some of Canada’s finest literary talent. Our sixth annual festival is shaping up to be another great one. Check out the authors and artists appearing this year!
