“Here is the world, sound as a nut, perfect, not the smallest piece of chaos left, never a stitch nor an end, not a mark of haste, or botching, or second thought” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

The trees and vegetation, which cover the land surface of the Earth and delight the eye, are performing vital tasks incumbent upon the vegetable world in nature. Its presence is essential to earth as an organism. It is the first condition of all life; it it the ‘skin’ of the earth, for without it there can be no water, and therefore, no life. ~ Richard St. Barbe Baker

The shores of the West Swale Wetlands. The background is sylvan and serene with Trembling Aspen bluffs and woodland horizon. In the right foreground are cattails and reed grasses, overgrown with shrubbery. At the left is a Willow idyllic and pastoral. Common waterfowl and ducks swim about the waters.

In the midst of her empire of rich rolling prairie are marsh and wetlands, breathless and wooded hills, overlooking our two great herons. It is here in this bucolic setting that the Black-crowned Night Heron Nycticorax nycticorax, and the Great Blue Heron Areda herodias roost, and forage. The idyllic landscape displaying every natural beauty, forest, sunlit waters, and grasslands meadow, at their bluest and their greenest.

In order to be perfect, the future poet should
Know every sound of nature, of river, lake an’ wood,
Should know each whispered note and every answerin’ call—
The world of poetry’s lookin’ up an’ poets climbin’ higher;
~ Tacitus Hussey

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
