CNC YXE 2024 results, and thank you!

With boundless gratitude and enthusiasm, the Friends of the Saskatoon Afforestation Areas extend a colossal thank you to all participants, supporters, collaborators, and sponsors who made the City Nature Challenge 2024 a resounding success! In a remarkable display of community spirit and nature appreciation, Saskatoon embraced the call to become biodiversity ambassadors, igniting a passion for citizen science that reverberated throughout our city and beyond.

From April 26 to April 29, 2024, Saskatoon's neighborhoods, parks, and green spaces buzzed with activity as individuals of all ages and backgrounds united to document the astonishing array of flora and fauna thriving in our midst. Through the user-friendly iNaturalist app, residents unleashed the power of citizen science, contributing invaluable data to illuminate the heartbeat of Saskatoon's biodiversity.

We are deeply grateful to our sponsors—the Saskatoon Nature Society, SaskTel, and SaskPower—for their generous support, which empowered us to engage the public and champion the cause of conservation. Special recognition goes to Jerin, whose unwavering dedication exemplifies the transformative impact of individual action in safeguarding our natural heritage.

Thanks to all the organizers at the International Level there were California Academy of Sciences and the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County (NHM) and nationwide across Canada was the Canadian Wildlife Federation, then locally in Saskatoon was Friends of the Saskatoon Afforestation Areas.

As we eagerly anticipate the results of this year's challenge, we invite everyone to mark their calendars for April 2025, when we will reconvene for another exhilarating exploration of Saskatoon's wild wonders. Together, we have demonstrated the power of collective action in nurturing a more sustainable, biodiverse future for generations to come.

Thank you for being the voice for nature, for embracing the call to action, and for making the City Nature Challenge 2024 an unforgettable celebration of Saskatoon's vibrant biodiversity. See you again next year!

In addition to the remarkable individual contributions, we are thrilled to highlight the active involvement of eight classrooms from four schools in Saskatoon. 200 students were immersed in the great outdoors, embarking on the Enchanted Forest Exploration: Discovering Wildlife and Wonders. This hands-on experience not only deepened their understanding of nature but also fostered a profound connection to the natural world, inspiring future stewards of the environment.

Furthermore, our community came together for four unforgettable events. These gatherings provided participants with the opportunity to unite, exchange stories, and delve into the wonders of the wilderness. Through shared experiences and meaningful conversations, we forged bonds that will endure beyond the confines of this challenge.

We extend our heartfelt appreciation to the educators, students, and event attendees whose enthusiasm and dedication enriched the City Nature Challenge 2024 experience. Together, we have cultivated a culture of curiosity, exploration, and conservation that will continue to thrive in Saskatoon for years to come. Thank you for your invaluable contributions to our shared journey of discovery and preservation.

If you are interested in collaborating and co-hosting in April 2025, we would love to hear from you! Also if you wish to host a City Nature Challenge in your city next year, please also reach out.
