In response to COVID-19 From the Jane’s Walk Steering Committee

“Taking into account the rapidly evolving set of global circumstances that is affecting each city differently, we are encouraging Jane’s Walk City Organizers to make decisions about their local festivals that prioritize the health, safety, and well-being of their communities. For some, that may mean cancelling this year’s festival. For others, that may mean postponement. For yet others, it may mean getting creative – taking the essence of Jane’s Walk and finding ways for that essence to live through channels that maintain physical distance! We believe it is most important to not physically gather or walk together in May. See the full Steering Committee Statement.”

After the public protocols around COVID-19 have been allayed, and society returns to normal, we will advise when the next nature or heritage tours will take place. In the meantime, stay well and healthy and follow protocols set by City of SaskatoonSaskatchewan Health and Health Canada in regards to the Coronavirus.  Best wishes to you all.

The trees and vegetation, which cover the land surface of the Earth and delight the eye, are performing vital tasks incumbent upon the vegetable world in nature. Its presence is essential to earth as an organism. It is the first condition of all life; it it the ‘skin’ of the earth, for without it there can be no water, and therefore, no life.~Richard St. Barbe Baker

 

It is not a farce.…”To be whole. To be complete. Wildness reminds us what it means to be human, what we are connected to rather than what we are separate from.” ~Terry Tempest Williams
