• SFFP&Z Designated A National Historic Site!

    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.

  • Ouch!

    We vaccinate our snowy owls, great grey owls , miniature horses and mountain goats every year against west Nile virus.

  • Time to wake up!

    Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park and Zoo grizzly bears, Mistaya and Koda have successfully completed their first hibernation. Mistaya and Koda started hibernating on December 5, 2016, and completed their hibernation on March 17, 2017. “We monitored the bears throughout their first hibernation, gathering data that can be used in future research projects,” said Tim Sinclair-Smith, Manager, SFFP&Z. After just over three months of hibernation, the bears have lost some weight, but due to not hibernating for ten years, they still have considerable fat reserves. Mistaya and Koda will be offered small amounts of vegetables; the same food they would find in the wild after hibernation.
