NatureHood is a signature program of Nature Canada. Its goal is connecting people of all ages to nature right where they live - which, in Canada, increasingly means urban centres. NatureHood inspires urban residents to connect with nature through innovative programming, celebratory events and stewardship activities set in urban green spaces and Important Bird and Biodiversity Areas (IBAs).
Nature Saskatchewan has partnered with Nature Canada to deliver the NatureHood program in Saskatchewan. Each year we hold free public events to inspire people to get outside and enjoy the nature that surrounds them.
Events such as the Christmas Bird Count for Kids allows children of all ages to learn about the birds that can survive our tough winters and lets the kids practice their bird ID skills.
However, it is not all about birds… Nature is everywhere, and geocaching, for example, is a great way to explore the outdoors. Check out our Facebook page or our Events Calendar for fun free family activities happening near you.
We also strive to connect students with Nature through our NatureHood activities and contribute to science through programs such as FeederWatch.

The NatureHood app is a simple tool to help identify local wildlife and map wildlife sightings. The NatureHood app is intended for school students and beginning 'wildlife observers' of all ages. It is designed to be user-friendly and doesn't require previous knowledge of or training in natural history. This app is not designed for experienced birders or other naturalists, though some experts may find the "info" tabs informative and helpful. www.naturehood.co
