Thank you for supporting the stewardship of over 67 sq/km and 90 km of public trail that is the Meewasin Valley! In the past few months, we’ve seen an increased demand for outdoor infrastructure to help support both the mental and physical health of our community. Although this time has held many uncertainties and adaptations, Meewasin’s commitment to educating youth, enhancing community spaces, and increasing quality of life for visitors and residents of Saskatoon and area has remained unchanged.

Please consider choosing to support the dedicated stewards of the river valley in Saskatoon & area this holiday season by donating, as we continue to work hard to provide benefits to both the mental and physical health of our community.

Take a moment and enjoy our new video, featuring Eric Anderson – communications leader for Sherbrooke Community Centre, and creator of the podcast YXE Underground – for our Giving Tuesday celebration.

Meewasin is honoured to be able to offer many opportunities for individuals to help us in maintaining the unique aspects of our city. We work with you to create your own legacy in the Meewasin Valley though gifts to commemorate events, relationships, or occasions, as something that can be enjoyed in your lifetime, not just as a memory.

It is because of the generosity of those who enjoyed the valley before us, that we are able to continue to enjoy and share our vibrant river valley today.

*Please ensure you provide any additional details regarding your donation (if it’s part of a larger, group donation, if you want a certain message, etc.) in the optional ‘Message for Meewasin’ text box found on the pages of each separate dedication item.

If leaving a legacy is something you would like to consider, you can view some of our options below or call our donations officer at 306-665-6887 or email our donations officer, to discuss all options available to you.

More Than a Trail Campaign

In celebration of its 40th year, Meewasin is initiating a capital project to improve the trail system, increase education and interactive experiences and enhance natural areas within the river valley conservation zone. This is the first phase in a long-term plan to rejuvenate this iconic natural landscape that is a jewel for our province.

The funds raised through this campaign will cover the cost of upgrading three trail sections, building a new greenhouse and seed bank, and improving education and programming opportunities.

The quiet phase of the campaign began in fall 2020 with a fundraising goal of $23 million. Gifts may be pledged over 3-5 years and recognition opportunities are available for gifts of $1,000 or more.

We invite you to contribute to our goal of maintaining a bright and vibrant river valley corridor for future generations.
