Today is a great day to open and sign into iNaturalist to your computer, and explore the world, Saskatchewan or Saskatoon for the exciting plants and animals around us.

Then on your smart phone download iNaturalist app, and sign in.

In the winter time, one can still take pictures of animals and birds. Discover fresh tracks and scat on the snow. Find plants, feathers, lichen on trees to take pictures of through the iNaturalist app.

There are YouTube tutorials posted, and informational iNaturalist pdfs online to get you started. There are getting started and teacher’s guides. You get out of it what you put into it.

Let us know if you have any questions or would like to go out to the afforestation areas for a tour!

Also, the Friends still has a prize worth $50 retail to anyone who finds the Linden tree in the west side of Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area! Send us the GPS or let us know where you found it. It is a treasure hunt!

World Wildlife Day

World Wildlife Day is March 3! What an opportunity!

What are you most interested in today? Maybe birds? More than one kind of bird, and identifying them! That would be fantastic to be on a bird scavenger hunt. So instead of staying at home with your “Where’s Waldo?” puzzles, come into the forest, and find birds, bird nests, and bird tracks.

Look in the bushy areas, and the swampy areas. Come out to the woods and immerse yourself in the sights, smells, and sounds of nature, and take away an experience that will stay with you for a lifetime of memories!

Download the winter bird checklist pamphlet and see how many of the birds in the listing you can see in the forest, and at the bird feeders! That is the scavenger hunt for today. If you email your Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area Bird sighting list to us or let us know your e-Bird user name, or iNaturalist user name for your afforestation area sightings, and you can be entered and be eligible for the prize draw taking place at the end of the month!

World Wildlife Day celebrates more than birds. Let us know the squirrels, or other animals, scat, footprints or animal signs you may see in the afforestation areas via email to be entered and be eligible for the prize draw taking place at the end of the month! Good Luck!

Richard St. Barbe Baker was the first person to be honoured with a lifetime membership in the World Wildlife Federation. Baker created and protected so many habitats worldwide in his tree planting endeavours.

“A simple act of kindness and compassion towards a single animal may not mean anything to all creatures, but will mean everything to one.”

“To be standing together in a frosty field, looking up into the sky, marvelling at birds and revelling in the natural world around us, was a simple miracle. And I wondered why we were so rarely able to appreciate it.”
