Naughty by Nature
Ever wonder how porcupines get it on? We have that answer and more lined up for this fun night out at Beaver Creek Conservation Area.
Meewasin combines some delicious local food & beverages with a tour that takes a light-hearted look at what happens in the river valley after hours. Join us while we “lift the leaves” on the birds and the bees.
Birdwatching is one of the most sustainable types of nature-tourism and Beaver Creek Conservation Area is a birding hot spot!
For a limited time during the spring breeding season, you can join Meewasin staff for an introduction to this on-trend hobby. You’ll also be treated to a local coffee and a continental breakfast box specially curated for this experience!
JUST FOR KIDS

Meewasin Grazing Dinners
Meewasin’s Grazing Dinners begin with a private hike through the native prairie at Beaver Creek Conservation Area followed by a delicious locally-sourced three-course dinner featuring Saskatchewan beef.
During dessert, you’ll get a chance to get up close and personal with a live sheep and stock dog demonstration and hear about how they help us manage the prairie ecosystems in the river valley.
Sip & Skate
Skating on an outdoor rink is a defining part of Canadian culture. No winter is complete without a visit to the Cameco Meewasin Skating Rink @Nutrien Plaza in downtown Saskatoon.
