Did you know that this week is Saskatchewan Multicultural Week? We are proud to have such a strong history of multiculturalism in our province.
SaskParks supports multiculturalism in various ways throughout the year. This year, we became a partner of the Cultural Access Pass program. This program gives new citizens access to hundreds of different cultural activities, including parks, museums and galleries, free of charge during their first year of citizenship. Lots of people used their Cultural Access Passes over the summer to experience our beautiful provincial parks!

Yann says that driving through Saskatchewan just to get to the mountains is like \"rushing down the Louvre to get to the Mona Lisa\".
We couldn't agree more. Take some time this weekend to stop and recognize the beauty of this incredible province!

Marcel Voyer here--we get up there usually once a year. Either camping in summer, or snowmobiling in winter. The Eskers are also very beautiful in winter (one of my favourite trails! )

Give your kids a head start with the help of Saskatchewan's Provincial Parks...
Studies have shown that time outdoors helps students succeed in school - improving memory, problem solving, and creativity. Children who spend time in nature are also physically healthier and more likely to take action for nature as adults. - David Suzuki Foundation

As university students go back to class today, we want to say a big thank you the Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport summer students.
At the end of their term, the students took a day out of the office to spruce up the trails at the Wascana Valley Nature Recreation Site. They fixed a portion of the trail which included tree planting, moving rocks, removing fences and generally cleaning things up a bit.
Thanks students... and best of luck with your studies!
