Eco Friendly Grant Appreciation

Thanks to funding received from Andrew and Penny of Eco-Friendly Saskatchewan we are able to embark on the second Anniversary “Clean-Up Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area” Service Project.  With the very kind collaboration  users of the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area, Community Associations, and Saskatoon green groups, and bicycle groups, and concerned citizens are the many and several volunteers who have been responding to help out.   A progress report of “before” and “after” photos needs to be sent to Andrew and Penny once our Clean up day, July 9, 2016, is completed. They will share our report and photos on their website as well as social media – so please send lots of great photos to StBarbeBaker@yahoo.com, please and thank you!  Also if you have any great stories about using the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area please send them in to be posted online!

To help protect the environment, it will be best to find a way to avoid the use of disposable cups and bottle at event.  Please bring a water bottle and/  or travel mug to the clean up event as disposable cups and disposable bottles will not be available for  use.

It is with heartfelt gratitude that we can proceed with a much safer, and more effective clean up this year with this grant from Ecofriendly Saskatchewan.  Thank you very much!

Author: stbarbebaker

This website is about the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area - an urban regional park of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. The hosts are the stewards of the afforestation area. The afforestation area received its name in honour of the great humanitarian, Richard St. Barbe Baker. Richard St. Barbe Baker (9 October 1889 – 9 June 1982) was an English forester, environmental activist and author, who contributed greatly to worldwide reforestation efforts. As a leader, he founded an organization, Men of the Trees, still active today, whose many chapters carry out reforestation internationally. {Wikipedia} Email is StBarbeBaker AT yahoo.com to reach the Stewards of the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area
