Meewasin's 40th Anniversary Gala is a fundraiser for Meewasin Valley Authority, and will bring together the many people who support Meewasin. The evening will consist of cocktails, dinner, a performance from Saskatoon band The Garrys, presentation of the Meewasin's Conservation Award, guest speakers and a variety of local artists with a focus on the natural environment supporting this great cause! The event will recognize and showcase the great work that is taking place in the areas of conservation, education and development and plans for the next 40 years.
Forty years ago, the South Saskatchewan River Valley was an unfinished canvas waiting for the artist to complete the painting.
Much of the present landscape was created through the influence and oversight of the Meewasin Valley Authority, an expert and leader in conservation of natural assets and cultural stories of the land.
As a result, the valley through Saskatoon and area contains protected endangered habitats, welcoming riverbank trails, captivating green spaces and engaging interpretive sites in beautiful juxtaposition with arts facilities, office buildings and hotels. Such a compelling blend of intact prairie grasslands, cultural heritage and modern amenities is exceptionally rare in a regional urban setting.
Meewasin has successfully enabled the valley, to flourish with a mix of conserved and developed land, as outlined in the 100-year Conceptual Master Plan produced by Raymond Moriyama in 1978.
Over the past 40 years hundreds of staff and thousands of volunteers have been working to ensure our river valley remains a vibrant, welcoming place that enhances the quality of life for people within Saskatchewan and thousands of visitors each year.
All of these people, along with the support of our amazing donors, we have created one of the most spectacular river valleys in Canada, one that is commonly said to be the best part about Saskatoon. With your support we can continue to keep these natural areas accessible and beautiful with an abundance of flora and fauna for many future generations to enjoy!
