Special Publications

Editor for Special Publications: Donna Bruce

Our growing list of special nature-related publications includes a broad range of topics, from studies of species such as Dragonflies & Damselflies in the Hand (2011) and Prairie Phoenix (Lilium philadelphicum): the Red Lily in Saskatchewan (2005) to the celebration of places such as The Great Sand Hills: A Prairie Oasis (2007). A more recent release, When the ice goes out on Doré Lake (2016) is an engaging account of 3 summers spent studying water birds on a boreal lake. We are also pleased to be co-publisher with the Flora of Saskatchewan Association of their manual of Saskatchewan’s vascular plants, compiled and printed in a series of installments or fascicles that began in 2011.

Nature Saskatchewan has published many regionally focused bird books over the years, more recently in the Manley Callin Series, including Birds of Yorkton—Duck Mountain (2003), Birds of the Saskatoon Area (2002) and the very popular and now out-of-print Birds of the Elbow (1996). The culmination of the series will be Birds of Saskatchewan, a massive compilation of all the species known to occur in the province and what is known about them, which is nearing completion for publication in 2018.

As a niche publisher specializing in natural history, we have sold thousands of copies of our 36 special publications, most which would not have been published in any other way. We are proud of our publications and the contribution they make to Saskatchewan’s natural heritage.
