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!
