So the first date for fence tagging is now online. We will try to make more announcements of when we can bring fencing tags to the forest! Meet up will be at George Genereux Urban Regional Park in Saskatoon, SK.
Would you like to help the fencing project in the City of Saskatoon? Be a volunteer => Tag a fence. It is just clip, clip, clip, and soon three tags are in place. Each tag needs to be positioned about every three feet (1 meter) apart from each other. Then snap, snap, snap, and just like that another three tags provide flags on the fencing! Sweet deal. Many hands make light work for a forest greenspace
A tag facing red will protect the animals in the winter months, alternating with a tag facing white will protect the animals in the summer months.
It is a great activity to save our urban wildlife as the extinction rates increase- a wonderful means to take action for conservation for these urban regional parks where no hunting is allowed, so the animals can come back to their native habitat to build resiliency in their population numbers.
If you can come out, and help. that would be fantastic! We will continue to put random dates online just in case people can come and help out! Snap, snap, snap, and another three tags are in place on the fence! It is great fun. Wear sturdy shoes for walking in a forest setting
Here are the GPS Latitude and Longitude numbers for google maps on your smart phone
A very handy thing to have would be an ice cream pail and belt (like berry picking) OR a tool belt with pockets to carry around the tags as you walk along the edge of the fence!
Thanks so much for considering this first time slot Tue, Sep 27, 2022 12:45 PM and the second date will be Wed, Sep 28, 2022 starting 11:45 AM. We will schedule two afternoons on Saturday October 1 at 2:00 pm and Sunday October 2 at 2:00 pm also, if still needed to do more tagging.
Here is one hour of autumn fun while the weather is still fantastic! Thank you kindly
