You'll want to know that the Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park and Zoo site celebrated its 100 year anniversary in 2013 and has been designated a National Historic Site. The Forestry Farm, in its 55 years as a working nursery station, shipped out 147 million trees for shelterbelts and reforestation in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
An adult Grizzly bear can attain speeds of up to 60km/hr. However, they have never been clocked at over 30km/hr in Saskatoon school zones!
Grizzly bears 30 lbs of fish, meat, fruits and vegetables a day.

The Saskatoon Zoo is the only one in Saskatchewan and is accredited by the Canadian Association of Zoos and Aquariums. The Park and Zoo receive over 200,000 visitors annually.
