Clean and Green!!

Let’s top last year’s record of 30,000 volunteer participants who came out to make Saskatoon beautiful!

Today is Earth day! Do you part, now this minute to save our planet! Sign up for the Saskatoon Meewasin Valley Authority River Bank clean up which is going on between  Saturday April 22, 2017 through to Friday May 19, 2017.  Then go out with your garbage bags to help clean up!  Bring to life Saskatchewan’s Motto  “From many peoples strength”.  is Multis E Gentibus Vires,

The South West Off Leash Recreation Area
is seeking your help April 29, 2017 10:00 a.m. to noon!!!Richard St. Barbe Baker, himself, adopted the motto the African word Twahamwe, meaning “pull together”.  Let’s all “pull together” and make an impact where you are outside today, Earth Day, and every day.  See you later, today!  😉

If you are out enjoying the park today, grab a few garbage bags from home before you leave your house, throw on a pair of gardening gloves, and as you walk outside, help with the clean up!  You will be glad you did.  Register your group or individual clean up online.  You can add in a location you feel passionate about, or request a location that needs attention.  Anytime you walk between today and  May 19, 2017 come help out, it is truly an amazing difference.

“Thank you to Loraas for placing garbage and recycling bins at 6 locations in the valley (Meewasin Park North, The Weir, Meewasin Valley Centre, Rotary Park Parking Lot, Diefenbaker Park, and south of the Northeast Swale). And thank you to the City of Saskatoon who will again provide pick up of collected garbage by community groups.

The South Saskatchewan River is no doubt a fantastic ecological asset, with incredible bio-diversity, and an integral link with our local economy. River Clean UP

Millions of tons of trash unfortunately find their way to our nation’s rivers, marshes and streams every year. This is not only visual pollution it contaminates your drinking water, and poses risks to the amazing flora and fauna.

Take before and after pictures! Track the volunteer progress along the river, and post them to facebook

Earth Day cleaning up our planet!

“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 work for peaceful construction for I am morally responsible for the world of today and the generations of tomorrow.’” wrote Richard St Barbe Baker in his book, The New Earth Charter.

This website is about the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area - an urban regional park of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. The hosts are the stewards of the afforestation area. 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
