What is the liability waiver? Why must we sign this?

 

There is no age limit for becoming a Cleanup Participant, but all participants must sign a liability waiver. Individuals under the age of 19 must bring a liability waiver that has been signed by a parent or legal guardian to their cleanup. Excerpts from the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup.

While the Shoreline Cleanup is a fun and easy way to positively impact our local environment, it is also an outdoor event with some risks involved. The liability waiver is a written agreement between cleanup participants and the Vancouver Aquarium, City of Saskatoon, the Meewasin Valley Authority, affinity Credit Union and all the Stewards of the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area  that recognizes these risks. By signing this form, the participant acknowledges that they are aware of any risks involved, and agree to not hold the Vancouver Aquarium, City of Saskatoon, the Meewasin Valley Authority, Affinity Credit Union or any of  the Stewards of the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area  responsible should any incident arise as a result of their participation.

As waivers are signed, lanyards with a number attached to it will be handed out to all volunteers.  [lanyards while quantities last] Waivers can be requested ahead of time for youth groups to fill out before arriving on site.  As Youth group waivers are handed in, then also, youth will be collecting their lanyards with a number attached to it.  The numbers are part of the draws for prizes.

”   It is with a spirit of reverence that I approach God’s Creation, this beautiful Earth.  The ancients believe that the Earth was a sentient being and felt the behavior of mankind upon it.  As we have no proof to the contrary, it might be as well for responsible people to accept this point of view and behave accordingly.”~ St. Barbe Baker

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
