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 to reach the Stewards of the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area

    1. Hi there We have been having a very mild winter, with much less snow cover than historically in our area. In the early 1900s there would be snow drifts high enough to cover trains, and trees, now snow barely covers the native prairie grasses. We are lucky to have Hallowe’en without snow for when the children go door to door. This year we actually had rain on Hallowe’en which presented its own logistics. So, we have had spots of snow all through November mixed with rain, and above melting temperatures for the most part of the month.


      1. Interestingly the almanac has predicted weather conditions as is for our area and yours. We have lived in Nanaimo for 3 years and the first two and 1 to 2 ft of snow the first of Dec. and it was cold in late October so we had a fireplace (furnace) going from the end of Oct to May. So far, we have had it on for a half a week and that only if required. We got a skiff of snow two days ago, but it is too warm to stay so it melted as it hit the ground. So I guess we’ll see lol
