Community Day in the Park a Success!

   Minimize
Sunday, August 14 was a departure from previous years in that we connected with the Saskatoon Open Door Society and St. Paul’s Lutheran Chruch to provide entertainment and education.  The City’s stage provided a focus for the cultural presentations.  The Fire Department and food trucks added to the festivites.
Thanks to our partners and sponsors and to the volunteers who made it all possible!

#GetMyBikeBack Awareness Initiative

   Minimize

GetMyBikeBack is a program that encourages people to take a photo of the serial number on their bicycles so that, in the event it is ever stolen or lost, they can provide that serial number to police.  This increases the likelihood of having their bikes returned to them if they’re located.

Police would also like to include a friendly reminder to everyone to lock up their bike or keep it inside.  The police have been experiencing an increase in bike thefts throughout our city and it’s important for everyone to ensure their homes, sheds and garages are locked and secure to keep their belongings safe.

Protect Our River!

   Minimize

Water from your street drains directly to our river – UNTREATED.

Eight actions you can take to help keep our river clean:
·         Wash your car at a carwash to prevent soap from entering storm drains.
·         Scoop your dog’s poop and put it in the garbage.
·         Take hazardous household chemicals to designated drop-off locations.
·         Fertilize lawns and gardens naturally with compost, grass cuttings and topsoil.
·         Keep insects away with natural predators such as birds (houses), ladybugs (leaf litter), spiders (leave webs) and bats (boxes).
·         Pull weeds by hand or host a weed pulling party.
·         Sweep dirt and sediment onto the lawn not the street.
·         Fix car leaks so fluids don’t get washed down the storm drains.

Yellow Fish RoadTM
Help build awareness by painting storm drains in your neighbourhood with a yellow fish and the words “rainwater only” This helps remind your friends and neighbours that what goes down our storm drains affects our river.  Contact the Girl Guides to borrow a painting kit and get involved.
