The Stewards of the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Arrea would like to express our gratitude for the excellent coverage by the Saskatoon Star Phoenix of our community clean up. The positive exposure you gave to the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area in the newspaper provided the community with a wonderful introduction to our goals and services as the Stewards strive to preserve the woodlands of the afforestation area, and conserve the wetlands of the West Swale.
“This generation may either be the last to exist in any semblance of a civilised world or that it will be the first to have the vision, the bearing and the greatness to say, ‘I will have nothing to do with this destruction of life, I will play no part in this devastation of the land, I am determined to live and
…today it is the duty of every thinking being to live, and to serve not only his own day and generation, but also generations unborn by helping to restore and maintain the green glory of the forests of the earth.”
