Win Prizes! Make your City Look Good!
It is with thanks and gratitude that businesses and corporations have offered their support to the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area Cleanup, indeed. Previously, we acknowledged the grant from EcoFriendly Sask which is an enormous assistance, indeed. The Fatbike Fatlanders Brigade have undertaken a fund-raising initiative for the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area as well. Donations and fund-raising such as these as well as those from the corporate and business community are truly appreciated, ever so much.
Cash donations go towards the clean up and dumping prevention activities. (Example; it costs $40.00 to remove and recycle 10 tires, access restriction barriers and gates are $150-1500 plus installation fees).
As July 9 falls within Canada’s Corporate Clean Up Week, any business employees who can come out as volunteers would, of course, be an enormous help.
So these are just some of the prizes being offered to the volunteers who arrive at the Richard St. Barbe Baker Clean Up. While supplies last, there will be random draws throughout the day as a thank you and a thumbs up in appreciation of volunteers who have dedicated their time and energy to the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area Clean up.
It truly does make one proud to live in The City of Saskatoon when corporations and the business community rise to the plate and show support to the volunteers who come out to clean up the environment. Thank you ever so much!

“A man who plants a tree is doing a very wonderful thing. He is setting in motion an organism which may far outlive him or his children, and year by year that tree is storing up energy and power, working with precision like a factory, but far superior to any factory of man.” Richard St. Barbe Baker
“The Things to do are: the things that need doing, that you see need to be done, and that no one else seems to see need to be done.”– Buckminster Fuller
