Geocache Description:

This cache is for SCAR 09 and should not be sought out until after 5:30 on May 29, 2009. Any logs before that will be deleted.


An ammo can cache hidden near the Scissons Environmental Educational Centre near Eagle Creek. This is a great spot for a picnic. Sask_girl loved listening to the sound of the running water. We saw a man fishing in the creek so maybe its good for fishing but make sure you have a license! Please rehide the cache well. If it is quite wet you may want to leave your car on the main road instead of pulling off and risk being stuck.

A quarter section of natural prairie associated with the Eagle Creek coulee system was bequeathed to the Saskatoon Catholic Schools Foundation by the Scissons Family in honor of their parents Ed and May Scissons with the understanding the property would be used to teach children about nature. The Saskatoon Catholic Schools Environmental Education Department was enlisted to develop and present programs based on the study of prairie ecology and environmental issues. The Ed and May Scissons site serves as an outdoor classroom for programs in Archaeology, Aquatic Ecosystems, Birding, Geography, Watercolors, Animal Tracking, Wilderness Survival and the Wonder of Water.

A group of volunteers, including teachers, students and parents has completed a five year population and productivity study of migratory songbirds breeding on the Scissons site. Through a partnership with the Institute for Bird Population in Point Reyes, California this information will give insights into environmental issues ranging from situational pollution to global warming. The Environmental Education Department also maintains partnerships with The Saskatoon Zoo Society, The Meewasin Valley Authority, The Saskatoon Environmental Society, Ducks Unlimited and the University of Saskatchewan Extension Division.
