Meewasin is the steward of the river valley in Saskatoon and area, which is upwards of 67 square kilometres of area. Our staff works hard year-round to conserve and monitor the natural spaces that provide habitat for wildlife, provide opportunities for outdoor learning, and offer engaging public experiences in the Meewasin Valley.
In-Person Education Programming
Typically, Meewasin offers education programming for a variety of age groups at the Northeast Swale, Saskatoon Natural Grasslands, and Beaver Creek Conservation Area (BCCA).
Please note that due to the pandemic we have had to minimize our current program offerings. We are currently offering full-day programming for Grade 5 students at the Beaver Creek Conservation Area (BCCA) on Thursday & Fridays only.
Our Fall/Winter 2020 Programming is currently fully booked. If you fill out the form and any programming dates become available, we will contact you as soon as possible.
We are currently gauging interest in and demand for additional programming and we’d like your feedback! If you are a group or educator interested in programming for other age groups and/or at other Meewasin sites, please help us better understand your needs by completing this survey.

K-12 Educator Resources
Are you an educator interested in accessing resources to help you get started or give you more ideas in regards to outdoor education?
Meewasin, in partnership with the Public and Catholic School divisions have been hard at work over the summer to develop a series of materials to help educators to achieve curriculum outcomes in an outdoor environment. It is important to Meewasin to have educators taking students into the Meewasin Valley and other natural areas to engage in further learning about conservation and other environmental learning.
These materials will help you prepare for and engage your students in outdoor learning and include resources such as:
- Outdoor Learning – Setting up for Success
- Excursion checklist
- Interpretive program guide
- Grade-specific lessons
- Quick facts and more!
Educators can submit a request to access our K-12 educator resources by completing a short form at this link.
This allows Meewasin to track usage of materials and resources and plan for further development.
You can also visit our Activities to do at Home section for at-home learning resources!
Meewasin will be expanding and digitizing additional resources for educators to use in the future. Keep an eye on our website or subscribe to our newsletter for updates.
