If you have good quality clothes, shoes, and accessories you don’t wear anymore (no rips, stains, tears, etc.) – put them in a box and bring them to our clothing swap.

We are having our 10th annual main event in Saskatoon and Area—there will be new geocaches published for our event– a 24hr cache-a-thon starting on Friday May 26th with a wind up party on Saturday May 27th….Geocaching is a worldwide treasure hunt—caches are hidden and people use a GPS or a phone app to go to the co-ordinates of the cache and then search for what is hidden. It is a game for all ages-all walks of life-families, retired folk, young people, single people-anyone can geocache!!! Geocaching gets people out in nature-hiking, walking enjoying the city or countryside. This event is held every year and cachers come from other cities, other provinces and all for one goal– to find as many caches as possible in the 24hr period! Geocaching is one of the 150 playlist of activities for Canada’s 150th Birthday celebrations!!!!!

Research shows the benefits of playing outside, and we’ve seen firsthand how our children, family’s, and community have benefitted from front yard play.
Inspired by the ‘Playing Out’ movement in the UK (playingout.net). We are a group of neighbours who are passionate and dedicated to front yard play, so we wanted to invite you and your kids to our front yards as we host our first ‘Playing Out’ event. The plan is to block off the street and play! Just like our daily front yard play, this is a laid back event. You bring your kids, your bikes, scooters, and anything else you want to play with. We will provide the sidewalk chalk and bubbles! Come out to play and be inspired to start playing in your own front yard!
*note: event will be cancelled if unfavourable weather conditions

Waste Not YXE is a group of Saskatoonians who are passionate about home waste reduction (many of whom are striving for a zero-waste, or waste-reduced lifestyle). We wish to invite people to a family friendly, zerowaste, pack-in pack-out, picnic where our group Admins will share our top three home waste reduction tips, host discussion, enjoy some acoustic background music, and discuss how reducing the use of plastics and conventional products can in particular have big impact on our water (and the creature who call waterways home).
Participants will be given a “Waste Not Picnic Checklist” that shows how simple it is to participate in activities in a waste-free way.
Waste Not YXE is all about the impact of personal responsibility when it becomes a community effort, and we are excited to share with the NatureCity community!
