INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE AND WORKSHOP ON VALUATION THEORY
Weather, Clothing, Footware and other Equipment
The typical Saskatoon weather in summer is dry and sunny, with
temperatures between 20 and 25 degree Celsius, sometimes more.
However, so far this summer the weather has not been typical
(La Ninja?). We had lots of rain and cloudy skies, with
temperatures lower than usual.
To see todays weather forecast, check one of the following:
There are no special shoes required for our excursions. Be sure you
bring shoes in which you feel comfortable when you walk around. There
are no long hikes planned on the excursions, but a walk through
Wanuskewin may take up to two hours. On demand, we may organize
longer hikes along the river on some other days.
Along the riverbanks there are several well preserved trails which
require no special shoes. However, to enjoy the "inofficial" narrow
trails the closest to the river, you may wish to have good hiking shoes.
At a few places, they are steep and may be slippery.
Some years ago, the provinces of Canada chose slogans for their car
license plates. The people of Saskatchewan chose "Land of the living
skies". An envious person from Alberta commented: "So finally they give
credit to the mosquitos!" - We recommend that you bring your favourite
insect repellent. Long trousers and shirts with long sleeves are
helpful, too. (We also have found a few ticks lately.)
Birdwatchers may want to bring good binoculars.
You don't have to bring your environmentally friendly personal coffee
mug. You'll get one with the crest of the
University of Saskatchewan
free of charge.
