Category: Children & Youth
Description: About the program: WILD Outside aims to engage young people (between the ages of 15 - 18) in outdoor adventure, conservation, and community service projects. With the support of program leaders, youth will be given the opportunity to collaboratively plan and execute conservation service projects and outdoor adventures. Program structure consists of one full-day (Saturday or Sunday) event per month, as well as an optional weekday workshop/educational activity. This is a year round program. Where you come in: We may occasionally need an additional adult to be present during an outdoor adventure activity or conservation project. These would be full day events on the weekend. There would be no cost for the adult volunteer (any equipment, excursion fees, background checks, etc. would be covered). Responsibilities would include helping to facilitate the event, supervising youth for safe behaviour, and being a positive role model for the youth (which means your own enthusiastic participation in the activity and conversations!). No special training is required and you will NEVER be alone with the youth.

Bird Window Strike Data Collector

Organization: Birds in Real Danger Saskatoon
Category: Research
Description: Who? Anyone with the ability and willingness to walk around buildings looking for evidence of bird window strikes. You do not need to be able to identify the birds (although this is helpful!) What? Documenting photo evidence of bird window strikes (injured or dead birds, feathers, etc.) as well as written details surrounding the collision (the distance to the building found, side of the building, building address - an instruction sheet will be provided). If a bird IS found (dead or alive), we ask that it is transported to Living Sky Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre. If you are unable to do so, we can arrange for another volunteer to help. Where? We currently have priority zones in the downtown and University campus areas. We are also happy to take data from your neighbourhood, or other areas where you see lots of window strikes! Why? This documented evidence will be supplied to the City of Saskatoon, the University of Saskatchewan, and other authorities to make a case for bird-friendly building guidelines in Saskatoon. The more we understand about where, when, and how collisions are happening, the better we can prevent it in the future! [/et_pb_blurb]
