Dr . Ryan Brook has access to Saskatoon’s Wildlife – the real nightlife in Saskatoon. He uses 30 trail cameras strapped to trees to photograph the different animals that are coming and going in the city and on its fringes. The river corridor is a living habitat that’s home to a lot of species including coyotes, skunks, foxes, moose, deer, rabbits, porcupines, beavers, and muskrats, but there have been cougar and bear sightings.
This program for National Forest Week is brought to you by the Friends of the Saskatoon Afforestation Areas an environmental non-profit charity that was created to preserve and restore the 326-acre Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area and the 148-acre George Genereux Urban Regional Park. As a member of the Indigenous Land Management Institute in the College of Agriculture and Bioresources, Brook combines traditional knowledge, wildlife ecology, ecosystem monitoring science and a wealth of data about wildlife movement and activities in Saskatoon. Join them to discover what Brook’s lab has discovered and how we can better understand urban wildlife and the ecology around us.
