Nature Saskatchewan owns or holds leases to six properties protected as nature sanctuaries because of their significant ecological character. Each sanctuary has Nature Saskatchewan members appointed as official stewards for the purpose of monitoring and protecting the land. Management plans and biodiversity surveys are prepared for each sanctuary. The sanctuary stewards are also involved in the development and leading of tours of the land for members, school groups, and visitors. Several sanctuaries have established visitation schedules.
Our sanctuaries include:
- Brandon Land (Located adjacent to the Greenwood Cemetery on Highway 49)
- Crooked Lake Fen
- Maurice Street
- Rendek Elm Forest
- Turtle Lake
- van Brienen Land
