Help requested please SAT Sept  24 9:30 – 1:30 pm  Many Hands Make Light Work for Forest Conservation Clean UP

YouTube Video

While it is still autumn, come help pick up lumber, small lumber pieces, wood, wood pallets.  A park user who enjoys the park space of the afforestation areas has spotted some lumber, wood, wood pallets and small lumber pieces for removal – a start has been made, but would go ever so much faster with more hands and more people please and thank you!  If a fence is going up, it would be so nice not to have a fence around a forest with garbage, it would be wonderful to have a forest green space without any garbage, and without any lumber in the forest.  The City of Saskatoon will supply a Loraas Bin. SAT Sept  24 9:30 am – 1:30 pm

If you have a truck ahead of time, that would be handy to bring the one pile of wood out of George Genereux forest, before the fencing is installed!  We could use the Richard St. Barbe Baker Loraas bin to help clean up both afforestation areas that way.

What a treat that would be.  email friendsafforestation@gmail.com or phone 306.380.5368 for further information.    See directions attached  from a Google Satellite Map!  Thank you for your consideration in coming to help out at the clean up for sure.

Here is a map for where we are meeting at the Loraas bin being installed for the day.

To get to the forest these are the directions GPS location of park entrance after turning off of Cedar Villa Road is this 52.102382, -106.788681

  • Drive on 22nd Street West in the City of Saskatoon in a westerly direction like you were heading out to Pike Lake.
  • At the traffic light intersection Turn left (south) onto Sk Highway 7.
  • As you are driving south on SK Hwy 7, pass by the intersection with 11th Street, pass by the 11th Street compost, and pass by the Poor Boys Esso.
  • Drive on top of the CNR overpass of the Sk Hwy 7 (Pike Lake Highway).
  • At the very bottom of the overpass  there is a place to turn left off of Sk Hwy 7 (Pike Lake Highway) onto Cedar Villa Road)

End Racism. Build Peace

The United Nations International Day of Peace was declared for 21 September. The theme in 2022 is “End Racism. Build Peace”

“Do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace.” — Dalai Lama

“An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind.” ― Mahatma Gandhi

“Peace comes from being able to contribute the best that we have, and all that we are, toward creating a world that supports everyone. But it is also securing the space for others to contribute the best that they have and all that they are.”
Hafsat Abiola

“World peace must develop from inner peace. Peace is not just mere absence of violence. Peace is, I think, the manifestation of human compassion.”
Dalai Lama

“We can go deeper to understand ourselves not only as members of one race against another but as fellow citizens with common dream for our future, hopes for our children, and commitments to better nation. In the end, we can and must shed ourselves of our racial idols and divisions that have bound and separated us, and find our dignity together as the children of God all made in the image of the One who loves us all.”
— Jim Wallis

As you walk, run, cycle through the afforestation areas, say “Hi, how are you?” to everyone you meet as if they were your kin, family, or friend!

Wildwoods of Saskatoon Film

Thank you to everyone who came out to the film today at the Remai Modern in Saskatoon. We will look for an opportune time to show it virtually over zoom for anyone who couldn’t make it to the film in person.

At times the film glitched, showed buffers, and lags for some unknown reasons. So it will be good to also see it the Wildwoods of Saskatoon virtually over zoom. Stay tuned for the date and time. Luckily, the storyline continued very well for the narrative and was well received through the survey.

With thanks to the Government of Canada, the City of Saskatoon, all of the folks who brought greetings, and everyone who participated in the making of the heritage documentary.

Tonight at 6:00 pm at Richard St. Barbe Baker Park is the last day to participate in the four day Biodiversity Challenge

Come out for tours on Sept 24 and Sept 25 to the afforestation areas.

Stories, legends, and tales

Have you ever sought to track the soul of the Saskatoon Afforestation Areas into its most secret places, and to make these woodlands confess its dearest sins. The forest who would stir us now by its stories, legends and tales must either give us an entirely new background, or reveal to us the soul of the wildwoods. The forest as story-teller gives a glimpse into the story that he tells us. The forest has seen marvellous things through knotholes. Its background is a woven tapestry of tales. Meet the afforestation areas, and touch the surface of their hidden stories, their secret places, their point of view.

National Forest Week brings attention to our forests and trees from coast to coast across Canada. Our forests and trees provide habitats for wildlife, insects, polllinator species, birds and so much more! What is the ‘triple environmental emergency we are facing?

1. Loss of biodiversity
2. Climate change
3. Out of control pollution.

Out of control pollution.
Our native biodiversity needs wild spaces, food and homes such as trees and forests provide in which to thrive. Forests, tree planting, and forest conservation initiatives are nature-based solutions towards climate action. Pollution, pesticides, herbicides are escalating the extinction events. Creating safe, organic forest spaces is a large step to halt and slow down the silent sixth mass extinction event of invertebrates, the planet’s bird food on wings. Ornithologists and botanists have noticed that the songbird, and raptor populations have declined by a staggering 48%. The monitored wildlife populations are reduced by a catastrophic 68%. A loss of forests and habitats have caused over 2/3 of our animal populations to totally disappear.

Richard St. Barbe Baker said it this way, “If a person loses one third of his or her skin, the person will die; if a tree loses a third of its bark, the tree will die, and if the world loses a third of its trees, the world will die.
We live less that five minutes without air and the trees give us air we breathe. We live less than five days without water, and trees are absolutely essential in the water cycle. We live less than five weeks without food, and without the trees we could not grow food.” (Filson, Bruce K. October 7, 1982, Western People, p. 5)

National Forest Week brings attention to our forests and trees from coast to coast across Canada.  Maple Leaf Day (or National Forest Day) takes place the third Wednesday of September, which in 2022 is September 21.  National Forest Week are the days around Maple Leaf Day.

Richard St. Barbe Baker said it this way,  “If a person loses one third of his or her skin, the person will die; if a tree loses a third of its bark, the tree will die, and if the world loses a third of its trees, the world will die.

We live less that five minutes without air and the trees give us air we breathe.  We live less than five days without water, and trees are absolutely essential in the water cycle.  We live less than five weeks without food, and without the trees we could not grow food.” (Filson, Bruce K.

Find your forest and share the story about your tree friend

In the days leading up to #NationalForestWeek

 Let people know about a forest you like to visit

 Share the location of a unique tree

 Tell a story about your favourite native tree

 Create a post on social media letting everyone know what event you have to offer about your favourite tree or forest

 Get together with other environmental groups to promote your forest or tree places by a networking event

There is no mood or passion that the forest cannot give us, and those of us who have discovered her secret can settle beforehand what our experiences are going to be. We can choose our day and select our hour. And lo! the dawn finds us in the obscure wood. Together witnessing the film expose the afforestation secrets, we pass through into the realm of legend. With pity or with joy, the secrets revealed, behold the stories and tales of another world, another time. Let us at least suppose so for the moment—that at the film -we settle down to discovering the real intention and the stories of the afforestation areas. Those stories which etch and mould the form of the afforestation areas.

Secrets, Elusive, Evasive

A secret is elusive and evasive. So it is with the afforestation areas. Many stories hide and lurk in and about the afforestation areas. And so the picture in the film – the imagery revealed in the film -Wildwoods of Saskatoon- becomes more wonderful to us than it really is, and reveals to us a secret of which, in truth, it knows nothing, and the music of the mystical prose is as sweet in our ears as was that flute. And in this it is right, for the meaning of any beautiful created thing – such as the afforestation areas – are, at least, as much in the soul of him who looks at it, as it was in his soul who wrought it.  Nay, it is rather the beholder who lends to the beautiful thing its myriae age, so that it becomes a vital portion of our lives, and a symbol of what we yearn for, or perhaps of what, having yearned for, we wonder what we may receive.

National Forest Week brings attention to our forests and trees from coast to coast across Canada. Our forests and trees provide habitats for wildlife, insects, polllinator species, birds and so much more! What is the ‘triple environmental emergency we are facing?

1. Loss of biodiversity
2. Climate change
3. Out of control pollution.

Out of control pollution.
Our native biodiversity needs wild spaces, food and homes such as trees and forests provide in which to thrive. Forests, tree planting, and forest conservation initiatives are nature-based solutions towards climate action. Pollution, pesticides, herbicides are escalating the extinction events. Creating safe, organic forest spaces is a large step to halt and slow down the silent sixth mass extinction event of invertebrates, the planet’s bird food on wings. Ornithologists and botanists have noticed that the songbird, and raptor populations have declined by a staggering 48%. The monitored wildlife populations are reduced by a catastrophic 68%. A loss of forests and habitats have caused over 2/3 of our animal populations to totally disappear.

Richard St. Barbe Baker said it this way, “If a person loses one third of his or her skin, the person will die; if a tree loses a third of its bark, the tree will die, and if the world loses a third of its trees, the world will die.
We live less that five minutes without air and the trees give us air we breathe. We live less than five days without water, and trees are absolutely essential in the water cycle. We live less than five weeks without food, and without the trees we could not grow food.” (Filson, Bruce K. October 7, 1982, Western People, p. 5)

This biodiversity Challenge is a great way to discover new trees and unexplored forest places, or perhaps it is a time to return to celebrate a favourite forest you love and are familiar with

Secret of the Expression of the Afforestation Areas

It may be that in some of my readers’ minds—those who, like the sceptical friends and those who have been in the afforestation areas whom perhaps you have met. They are not distinctly conscious of the cause or secret of the expression of the afforestation areas—some doubt may still remain after what has been said of this place, of these wildwoods. Such a doubt ought to disappear when the time and history are considered, and when it is found that the expression peculiar to trees and greenspaces varies infinitely in degree, and is always greatest in those shades of the colour which come nearest to the most beautiful spring and autumnal colors to grace the viewer. Delve into the many and several secrets of the afforestation areas of Saskatoon

A Glimmer of a Rumour

When the forest speaks to us and tells us their own secrets- they can always charm our ears to listening and our lips to silence. The world will never weary of watching, and yearning for their ears to hear and delve into the silence, and the secrets held in the afforestation areas. Can it be called the forests’ autobiography? -the autobiography that is irresistible?

Perhaps you have sometimes thought that the story of the afforestation areas’ secrets might be really an artistic myth, created in critical days, and serving to remind us, not merely that the Great Poet is always a Seer, seeing less with the eyes of the body than he does with the eyes of the soul, but that he is a true singer also, building his song out of music, repeating each line over and over again to himself till he has caught the secret of its melody, chaunting in darkness the words that are winged with light. 

The image stained upon the afforestation areas in our minds. For those who know little of the life of the afforestation areas this film reveals the secrets. For the secrets of life and death belong to those, and those only, whom the sequence of time affects, and who possess not merely the present but the future, and can rise or fall from a past of glory or of shame.  Maybe you heard of something hinted at, a glimmer of a rumour, or a tale about the afforestation areas.

The Charm of the Afforestation Areas

The secret of the charm of the afforestation areas, I imagine, is traceable to the fact that there is distinctly something mysterious, unknown, and heretofore hidden. From this it will be seen that I am not claiming a discovery; that what I have called a secret of the charm of the afforestation areas is a secret known to every man, woman, and child, even to those of my own friends who stoutly deny that they have any such knowledge. But I think it is best known to children. What I am here doing is merely to bring together and put in form certain more or less vague thoughts and feelings which I (and therefore all of us) have about the afforestation areas; and it is a small matter, but it happens to be one which no person has hitherto attempted.
