Ecological Assessment and Data Inventory Citizen science bio-blitzes, scavenger hunts, and data inventory to identify flora and fauna will establish a baseline inventory. Afterwards research and best practices can be undertaken for appropriate conservation measures. Many groups, i.e. the Saskatoon Entomological Society, Saskatoon Wildlife Society, and classrooms, are ready for bio-blitzes this spring. This is also a great capacity building opportunity for many.
