The EcoFriendly Sask Calendar is filling up quickly with interesting activities all around the province. Here are just a few – head on over to the EcoFriendly Sask Calendar to see what else might be of interest. 

Hawks, Mar. 10, Moose Jaw
Learn to identify some of Saskatchewan’s birds with help from Dave Stymeist who will be introducing the hawks of Saskatchewan at the Nature Moose Jaw meeting at 7 pm, Mar. 10, in the MJDS cardroom, Eaton building.

ForestART, July 3-7, Ness Creek
ForestArt, July 3-7, is an opportunity to spend 4 days in the boreal forest. Paint out of doors; use design and colour to translate your experience into lines on paper; try your hand at blacksmithing; using ancient encaustic techniques, create works inspired by your forest surroundings; or practise design and composition techniques that will enhance your landscape photographs. In addition to making art, there will be morning yoga, guided nature walks, and boreal forest-sourced appetizers.

Beekeeping, April, Prince Albert
A member of the Prince Albert Parkland Permaculture Guild has offered to host a beekeeping weekend in April.
