Several parks have an assortment of daily drop-in programs scheduled throughout July and August. Each park offers activities that are different from the last, from group-led games, crafts, stories and sand castle contests to campfire singalongs, sunset paddles and special musical performances.
Whether visiting the park for the day or staying for the full week, everyone is welcome to participate in the park programs and events.
SaskExpress will be touring the parks again in July, showcasing the extraordinary talents of young Saskatchewan performers in this year’s Circus of Life show. Performances are scheduled for Candle Lake, Great Blue Heron, Pike Lake, Rowan’s Ravine, Greenwater Lake, Duck Mountain, Moose Mountain and Saskatchewan Landing provincial parks.
The popular Learn to Fish program is back this summer with sessions on July 7, 14 and 15 in six different parks, free of charge. With expert anglers, Jason Matity and Jeff Matity, participants will learn fishing basics including fish identification, how to pack a tackle box, cleaning, filleting and more.
New this year is Sask Parks’ province-wide BioBlitz, from July 15-21. The week-long virtual blitz is dedicated to discovering all the plants, wildlife and bugs that are found in each provincial park. Guests can participate in this exciting discovery challenge by simply downloading the required app, iNaturalist, to their smartphone.
More information on SaskExpress, Learn to Fish and Sask Parks BioBlitz are available at www.tourismsaskatchewan.com/places-to-go/provincial-parks/activities. Campers can also find individual park event and program calendars online, or they can pick up printed calendars at park offices upon arrival.
