conserve and sustain our planet

WORLD ART DAY APRIL 15, 2020

There are amazing ways to create art.  Songs and  music may commemorate nature.  Poetry may ring out the praises of the environment.  Photography, scientific illustrations and drawings may also be artistic.  Henry David Thoreau, and Richard St. Barbe Baker among many others wrote about nature, and trees.  There are many ways of communicating adaptation to climate change: the art and science of public engagement when climate change comes home.  Which way is the most appealing?  Why? Which makes the most impact?  Climate Change Art Helps People Connect With A Challenging Topic. The enormity of climate change, and how it affects the earth can be overwhelming, and stressful.   Art is one personal method of taking action, of making a difference.

“I hope my paintings will always inspire people to become a part of nature rather than a force that manipulates and destroys it. I hope my work will be seen as an important voice in the environmental awakening of the last 50 years that is aiming to conserve and sustain our planet.”~Clyde Aspevig

Today is Wednesday April 15, and it is time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day on April 22, and to bring awareness to Earth Month- the month of April. This year’s Earth Day 2020 theme is Climate Action.

“It is futile for an artist to try to create an environment because you have an environment around you all the time. Any living organism has an environment. “~Carl Andre

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
